Kindergarten-Grade 2—Nancy is back, and here she encourages her audience to use some "fancy" words. Arranged alphabetically with usually one entry per letter, the terms are introduced. For example, "Fiasco—a big flop, a disaster. I dropped all the parfaits. What a fiasco!" Instead of dogs, Nancy uses "canine" and substitutes "excursion" for trip. Other fun-filled suggestions include "boa," "tiara," and "wardrobe." The energetic, colorful illustrations entice readers to add sparkle to their conversations and writings.—Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH

Fancy Nancy’s many fans will want this alphabetically organized list of fancy words. Designed to expand vocabulary, the book places one new word and its definition on a page, then offers a sentence to show its use in context. For instance, accessories is defined as “fancy extra stuff.” The sentence, which explains that Nancy has more fancy stuff than anybody else in the world, is bolstered by an ink-and-watercolor illustration, featuring Nancy covered in bows and boas, ribbons and wrappings. The vocabulary builders include great words—such as improvise and parasol—but kids will have fun with the concept, too. Grades K-2. --Ilene Cooper

I love kids books, so when I find some I really love, I buy them! Whether it's the story, the pictures, or both, I want to have a copy!
With the Fancy Nancy books, it actually mostly the pictures I love, but the stories are cute too. There are an abundance of stories, so if you have a child - a pre-reader, or early reader, this is a great series because they won't fall in love with them, and then find there aren't enough! Like some of the other adorable children's series - Henry & Mudge, Critter, this series covers a variety of topics - the one I'm reviewing right now is FN's Favorite Fancy Words: From Accessories to Zany - which is a good vocabulary builder for little ones! Fancy Nancy uses words you often don't find in other series for young kids, and she'll always define the "Fancy" word for the reader. A cute way to introduce new words, new "Fancy" words! There are also books about the stars, tea parties, Mother's Day, butterflies, exploring, Artists, puppies, "beauty day", fashion boutique, Christmas, and many many more!
The hardback books are nice to have if you keep your children's books, but if you just want a copy, the paperbacks are every bit as nice, they just won't hold up like a hardcover will. At 3.99 and 4 for 3 for the paperbacks, that's a good incentive to collect them all, or if you prefer the hard covers, they run between approximately 10.99 - 14.99 - which is a pretty good value for kids books which are so delightfully illustrated!
A must have for every aspiring xenophile (if you want to know what it means buy the book).
