Format: Paperback
Written for girly-girls ages 4 to 8, this latest Fancy Nancy title celebrates Easter. Readers can lift 13 different flaps to see what is underneath.

The story is about Nancy's family getting ready for an Easter party; Nancy and her best friend Bree help with the decorations. There are Easter eggs and baskets, and a little child dressed as the Easter bunny. There is no mention of religion.

As with all the Fancy Nancy books, the delight is in the details. Nancy's Easter bonnet has fluffy chicks around the brim. Bree's curlicue hair is fancied up with Easter eggs. Nancy's dog Frenchie digs up a flower in the garden and tracks mud inside the house. Mom's desk computer has Post-it notes attached; a crumpled piece of paper almost made it into the trash can. Robin Preiss Glasser's colorful illustrations tell the story just as clearly as Jane O'Connor's words.

Unlike other Fancy Nancy titles, Elegant Easter does NOT have a list of the "fancy" words in the back with their definitions. These words include gala and Bonjour. Also divine, which you say "when something is so gorgeous it is very hard to top," in Nancy's words. Well said!

Other Fancy Nancy titles include:
Fancy Nancy
Fancy Nancy: Heart to Heart
Fancy Nancy: Explorer Extraordinaire!
Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly

My almost 4 year old daughter adores Fancy Nancy. I bought her this book for Easter. It has flaps inside that you lift to reveal fanciness underneath. My daughter loves it. The story isn't very developed. It is just Fancy Nancy setting up for their Elegant Easter party. No real conclusion- they never actually have the party. My daughter didn't seem to notice. She was too busy seeing what fancy things she could find under the little flaps. On story alone, it would get 2 stars. It being Fancy Nancy and my daughter adoring it bumps the star rating up a bit.

Seeing this, the Easter Bunny could hardly resist popping a copy of this into my daughter Nancy's Easter basket. She really enjoyed this one. The story is a bit thin but it is the first Fancy Nancy lift-the-flap book as far as I know and that added a bit of fun. Certainly it's worth it around the holiday.

My 6 year old loves Fancy Nancy, we buy these books a lot and she never gets sick of them and I love all the use of different words. They are super cute books and I will continue to buy them.

If you are looking for an adorable Easter book for the special little girl in your life, be sure to check this book out.

As Fancy Nancy prepares for her Easter gala (that's a fancy word for a party), she is busy greeting guests by saying: bonjour (that's a fancy french word for hello), and she makes a beautiful bouquet (that's a fancy word for a very pretty bunch of flowers).

Well, I think you get the idea. I am totally addicted to these adorable "fancy girl" books, that not only tells a cute story, but teaches some grown up words in each book as well. This one is especially cute and perfect for the upcoming Easter holiday. The book is not only beautifully illustrated, but it has pop up flaps full of awesome surprises in addition to some "fancy" new words for your special little girl.

Recommended for girls ages (4 - 8).

I loved reading this to my pre-k class because it incorporates a lot of basic reading concepts such as rhyming patterns, alliteration, characterization, and other elements that encourage critical thinking, creativity, and using your imagination.
