Fancy Words Are Simply Fascinating!

From everyone's favorite fancy girl comes an alphabetical guide to enhancing vocabulary. Why say beautiful when there are fancy words like gorgeous and glamorous? Instead of hello, try bonjour, which is French and so much fancier. An umbrella will keep you dry, but a parasol will make you feel like a Hollywood movie star!

With this helpful A-to-Z guide, Fancy Nancy shows that making plain words into fancy ones is not only educational, it's fun!

Review:

"Building on O'Connor and Glasser's bestselling series, ultimate girly-girl Fancy Nancy makes vocabulary glamorous in this A — Z compendium ('That's fancy for collection'). As O'Connor explains in a foreword, 'When you use [a fancy word] in a sentence, it's like adding sprinkles to vanilla ice cream!' The chosen words are generally helpful (hostess, wardrobe, understated) rather than precocious (ooh la la!), and reflect Fancy Nancy's special style. For example, to introduce the word 'improvise,' as in 'I wanted a canopy bed so I had to improvise. I used a sheet, a mop, and a broom,' Glasser shows the minimaven lolling in bed with bonbons and a tea tray, broomsticks supporting a canopy of perfectly ruffled gingham. Ooh la la, indeed! Ages 4-7." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK!!!! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AND ANY FANCY NANCY BOOKS TO ANY PARENT OF A LITTLE GIRL.
"OOH-LA-LA!" I am planning my Daughter's 6th Birthday Party for the end of October, 2010! We are doing a home-spun Fancy Nancy theme! One of the MANY Fancy Nancy activities we are doing is reading the Fancy Nancy's Favorite Fancy Words book to the guests! Not only will it be fun but it will also expand the girls' vocabulary! They are all in Kindergarten and they are so very impressionable at this age! They are all dressing up in their FANCIEST "wardrobes" for the "soiree" and we are going to have them do their own Fancy Word book as well. We ADORE all the Fancy Nancy books and I very much admire how the Authors' support children to be themselves and let their free spirits come out and play!!! We are also considering giving one of these books to each of the girls at the party as one of their party favors. There are only 6 guests. I even enjoy reading them. It brings out the little girl in ME and I am 36! =D
