Themes: party, surprise, secrets, planning

Nancy is planning a party with her committee—that's a fancy word for a group with a job to do. But it's not just any party, but a super secret surprise party! So secret, she won't even say who the party is for! As she and her classmates prepare, can you guess who might be the star of the party?

Fancy Nancy is a great beginning reader series. Not only are the stories engaging, but they're great vocabulary builders. In this story, Nancy uses bigger words like, "beverages," "delectable," and "trustworthy," and then explains what they mean. There's also a list at the back reviewing the vocabulary. Nancy, herself, is also a great character—polite, caring, and fun. Great for girls and boys alike. I recommend this series, especially if your kids are fans of her picture books.
