Yet another great book by Jane O'Connor in the Fancy Nancy series! Adorable illustrations, as ever, and wonderful scientific-based information about stars set in fun family-time story about watching stars. The glow-in-the-dark cover is a cute bonus!

Fancy Nancy Stellar Stargazer! by Jane O'Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser

From the inside flap:

"Fancy Nancy thinks that everything in the sky is simply stellar, from the sun and the moon to the stars and their constellations (that's a fancy word for the shapes the stars make!). So nothing could make her happier than a special sleepover under the stars with her dad and little sister JoJo. Together Nancy and JoJo wish on stars, moon bathe, and even eat astronaut ice cream! But when rain clouds cover up the stars, what's a stellar stargazer to do?"

Fancy Nancy is one of my all time favorite picture book characters. Glasser's illustrations are absolutely beautiful and so detailed. O'Connor tells an entertaining story (sometimes with a lesson) that keeps young readers coming back for more.

In this installment, Nancy, her sister JoJo and the reader learn about stars. O'Connor includes "Stellar Facts" among the illustrations, making this an excellent supplement to a lesson on stars and planets.

Recommended for Kindergarten through 2nd Grade (though older fans of Fancy Nancy would also enjoy this book.)

Mrs. Archer's rating: 5 of 5!

My daughter loves Fancy Nancy, and this one is probably her favorite. It's filled with lots of facts about stars, our sun, and the moon and can really get little ones interested in astronomy.

My only minor complaint is that they state very concretely that there are no aliens (which seems like an out of place comment since they are just talking about the moon and stars in this book). I think this is very open to debate, it seems odd that they say this in here like it's a fact. I'm just saying, the universe is a huge place, the probability of lifeforms elsewhere in it is pretty high. Anyway, when I read this book I add "on the moon" when I read that "there aren't any aliens"--that's much more accurate and has actually been scientifically proven.

The book also shows Nancy and Jo Jo playing together a lot--it's nice seeing a kids book with siblings getting along, rather than just arguing all the time for low-brow comedic effect.

Finally, the cover glows in the dark! Yes, this actually was a big selling point, kids love things that glow in the dark.

The book reinforced the content of "Fancy Nancy Sees Stars" and provided additional information on constellations.The idea of exploring the Solar System was remarkable allowing the reader/ listener to learn vicariously. Wonderful book for children to learn more about the solar system using practical family oriented adventures.

Loved this book! It was a gift for my daughter's 5th birthday and she loves it! She especially loves shining her flashlight on all the glow-in-the-dark pictures and "reading" under the covers in her room...so maybe it wasn't a good idea to pair this book with a flashlight, but it is pretty funny watching her!

My daughter LOVES this book. Fancy Nancy is a favorite in our house, and this one does not disappoint. The subtle Star Wars reference with her hair is adorable, but the book really throws in great facts about our the stars while incorporating a cute story that encourages your own child to make up a tale about constellations. As usual, the pictures are darling!

Okay my 3.5 year old daughter loves these books. I think they're okay and my husband thinks Nancy is a little brat. Now, here's where my review might be helpful to those parents like myself who might not want to use words such as "ugly" to describe the color brown. I think the author made a poor choice in language. I want my daughter to continue to believe that all colors can be "pretty." Without being preachy, I just thought it should be noted.

The book does a good job of teaching (in a fun way) a lot of cool stuff about the stars and moon etc.

A decent library checkout. Not bookshelf worthy.

Also, the glow in the dark is only on the outside paper, not the actual book cover.

My daughter is almost 4 and we have been enjoying this book for about 6 months. It is really cute and man, if you pack some info into a fancy nancy format you have got an instant audience. My daughter actually got into constellations after first reading this, and she still is actually-she certainly knows the ones featured in this book, because they are the first ones she had ever seen. After this we got "zoo in the sky" and the one by the same author about heroes etc. and she really likes things about the night sky to this day. I just got this as a gift for a friend's kid (along with the Milton moon in my room) and I think it will be a good gift because her daughter likes girly things (dress-up etc.), and her mom prefers educational toys, and does not love girly stuff, so I think it is a nice compromise. I love it when Nancy talks about the man on the moon, and then draws the moon as a "tres fancy lady"-classic Nancy.
