Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Selena is a little girl “who does not walk so much as twirl.” When her mother takes her to Miss Tutus school of ballet, Selena has a bit of trouble with some of the steps, but still she practices and practices to get them right. Finally the time comes for Selena to make her debut. But she is terrified. Will her fear stop her from becoming Miss Tutus star?

Lesléa Newmans lyrical and humorous story about achieving ones dream is perfectly matched with Carey Armstrong-Elliss witty and charming illustrations, which are filled with little stories of their own.

Synopsis:

Little Red Riding Hood is adorably re-cast as a very littleand#160;precocious toddler in this modern, sweetand#160;retelling of the classic tale.

Her considerable charm and fearlessness quickly turn the Wolf from deadly foe to confused ally. At Grandmaand#8217;s (who is appropriately terrified at first), Wolf is invited in for an exhausting afternoon of tea parties, dancing, and hide-and-seek. But as parents will surely recognize, an over-tired and homesick pre-schooler is far scarier than any wolf. As Little Red melts down from missing her mummy, Wolfand#8217;s moment of truth arrives and rather than and#8220;eat her upand#8221; he cheers her up and all three and#8220;sleep happily ever after.and#8221;

Synopsis:

This is ELLA. She is six years old. She lives at the Local Hotel. She has a nanny called Manny. He has tattoos for sleeves and he might go in with some guys to buy a grilled cheese truck. Sometimes Ella weaves purses out of Ziploc bags and reclaimed twine. (She is artsy of course.) She has a dog named Stacie and a fish named Rasta and a scooter which is important for getting everywhere she needs to be. Altogether she has been to 62 events including that Hillary Clinton fundraiser. She is NEVER bored. If Ella and Kay Thompsonand#8217;s Eloise got together for a play date, they would have a very good time indeed.

My daughter LOVES these books. She is almost 6, and I've been reading them to her since she was 1! Her vocabulary has definitely broadened. Very cute books, and I really enjoy reading them to her:)

I have given this and the two other books to so many young girls, they love them. They inspire the youngest reader to keep on reading and make being a little "ladY" so exciting . The love of words and what we can do with them is a lost art, Jane Oconnor is a wonder in this day an age.

Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
With Barbie ? , Disney Princesses? , and their branded cohorts all the rage among the preschool set, it can be more difficult than ever to get many little girls to pay attention to anything that isn?t pink, glittery, and branded within an inch of its long, long corporate life. Not that there?s anything wrong with the occasional Barbie Mermaidia? DVD or Ariel the Mermaid is My Best Friend? picture book; but occasionally it starts to grate on parents that their little princesses aren?t being exposed to something with a little more substance. Fear not, concerned parents! Just introduce your daughter, granddaughter, niece, etc. to the one and only Fancy Nancy. Heck, even the dress-up-addicted and imaginative among little boys may even get a kick out of it.
Yes, in Nancy?s world everything is still fuschia, glittery, spangled, and otherwise completely over-the-top?in other words, perfect for grabbing the attention of princess-crazed preschoolers. But there?s more to this story than that?there are the people with whom Nancy chooses to share her fancy proclivities. Her generosity, and their reactions to her ministrations, are what really make this book great. When Nancy decides that her family--mother, father, and younger sister?are just not ?fancy? (read: heavily adorned with sequins, tiaras, feather boas, etc.) enough for her tastes, she resolves to do something to rectify the situation. Nancy?s Fancy Lessons follow, with a resulting ending that will remind you what is so great about family; and all this done with a light touch, and none of the sugary-sweet smarminess that is such a turnoff in many other ?girls?? books.
