Holiday season for Fancy Nancy means a decorated house, delectable goodies, and the opportunity to finally use the angel tree topper she bought last summer with her own money. The tree topper is everything the box promised: it spins, it flashes, it changes colors. But a fight with the dog results in a knocked-over tree and a broken topper. Grandpa to the rescue, and Nancy loves her homemade tree topper as much as the fancy one, which stretches credulity a bit. However, Christmas is the perfect time for all sorts of fancy doings, which the always-fun artwork makes abundantly and amusingly clear. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper

When she got this book last week, she immediately called me. She's now almost 6 years old and in kindergarten. She said, "Grammy, I love, love, love the new Fancy Nancy book. It's utterly splendiferous!" I laughed and asked her about the story and she told me all about it. Then my daughter got on the phone and told me that Mary Mace was recently tested and promoted to a first grade reader because she's so far ahead of the other children. Her teacher was amazed by how many 'big' words Mary Mace knew. My daughter and I both agreed that Fancy Nancy played a huge part in expanding Mary Mace's vocabulary. Each book is full of exciting, fun words and synonyms and the artwork is fabulous and glittering.
If you're looking for a book to make a little girl extremely happy this year for Christmas, I highly recommend this book and all of the Fancy Nancy books. They're not only fun, but also educational!
