Summary (from the book jacket): Meet Nancy, who believes that more is ALWAYS better when it comes to being fancy. From the top of her tiara down to her sparkly studded shoes, Nancy is determined to teach her family a thing or two about being fancy. How Nancy transforms her parents and little sister for one enchanted evening makes for a story that is funny and warm- with or without the frills.
All the Fancy Nancy books are a huge hit in our home. Don't let the fluff fool you, these books have substance. Children can relate to the mistakes Nancy makes and the disappointments she faces. I appreciate that at the heart of each of these stories is a loving, accepting family.
Julia, Lauren, and our friend Mary Ann got together for some Fancy Nancy fun! We began our festivities by gathering on the couch to read the book.
Nancy loves to write her name with a pen with a plume. The girls had fun writing their names on fancy paper with plumed pencils. To make these pencils I taped a feather to the end of a pencil, wrapped the tape with ribbon, and secured the ribbon with a small piece of tape.
Nancy gave her family lessons on the difference between plain and fancy. We sorted plain and fancy items.
Nancy had disastrous results when she tried carrying her ice cream tray like a fancy waiter. My girls had fun carrying a tray of pretend ice cream across the room.
Although Nancy says there is no fancy or better way to say "I love you" we still found a way to make fancy "I love you" signs.
The girls enjoyed eating sandwiches and fruit with frilly toothpicks while sipping apple juice from china teacups. Pinkies up, of course!
We couldn't celebrate Fancy Nancy without parfaits for dessert!
On our book theme days, we have a great time reading and experiencing fun books. I enjoy the challenge of coming up with book related activities on a shoestring budget! We have activities planned for each of the Fancy Nancy books. Next up: Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy
