Another low point in the FN world for me- relying too heavily on the "lift the flap" gimmick made the plot go out the wayside.

Also, absolutely not enough costume changes.

love her decorating ideas
I love lift the flap books and this one is awesome. The story depends on the kids to find the hidden flaps and lift them. It is a neat concept and helps the story flow. The story is about Nancy preparing for Easter with her family and her friend Bree. They have to decorate the house, dye and hide eggs, go Easter egg hunting and much more. This book is fun and like always I love the "fancy" words

If you are looking for an adorable Easter book for the special little girl in your life, be sure to check this book out.

As Fancy Nancy prepares for her Easter gala (that's a fancy word for a party), she is busy greeting guests by saying: bonjour (that's a fancy french word for hello), and she makes a beautiful bouquet (that's a fancy word for a very pretty bunch of flowers).

Well, I think you get the idea. I am totally addicted to these adorable "fancy girl" books, that not only tells a cute st
Our library had a Fancy Nancy Tea Party, so we read as many of these books as we could before the party. Natalie came to like Fancy Nancy's character. The actual concept of fancy might be a little beyond her still, but she asked for the books again and again. This is not that great of a story. Its a life the flap, so its really about finding the eggs. It does still have the fanciness of the series, so a fan of Nancy will be happy. But, not a good place to start the series.

In this little 8x8 paperback, Nancy and Bree are getting ready for an easter party. Going through the pages and using the lift-the-flap panels a reader can help them find what the need in supplies. It's a fun and fast read for the easter season full of easter eggs and pastel party supplies.

*Thanks to HC for providing a copy for review.*

When I pulled this at the library I didn't realize it was a lift-the-flap book. My daughter really loves those types of books. This was a cute story about getting ready for Easter. I always enjoy the illustrations for the Fancy Nancy books. I also usually enjoy the stories. I like that it teaches kids new vocabulary but it's not overly thrown in there. This is a great book for the younger kids who can still enjoy a lift-the-flap book.

This is a perfect book for my daughter; she is very much like Fancy Nancy. She enjoys dressing up, having parties, and making everything just so. This is a cute book for Easter. Nancy uses some excellent words (rustle, elegant). This is a flip book, so readers have plenty to do while reading the book.

Overall, this is a hit!

This book is a quick and easy read with wonderful pictures (some hidden and some in plain sight) that goes with the words. This would be a good story to read around Easter time. Also, there are French words in the book that also tells you the English translation.

This book is excellent!!! I love Fancy Nancy and this little book is full of surprises (hidden flaps and such) This is a book that will NOT be circulated in our library because of the flaps but it is still ADORABLE!

46 months - I'm not a big fan of lift the flap books, they are typically all the same and boring. Luckily O and I both enjoy Fancy Nancy and although this book isn't as interesting as a full length FN story it does make for a nice addition to our Easter books.

This book was fun to read because it was a flip book. Young students would find this fun because of the flips in the book they would have a lot of fun guessing what is behind the flips. This book would also be fun to read around Easter because the book is about Easter.

So recently, my daughter has become extremely interested in Fancy Nancy. So, we have been reading some of the Fancy Nancy series. This series is lots of fun and all the heart warming moments are a nice touch to the rather flouncy, fancy moments.

We like most of the "Fancy Nancy" books but this one was boring. It has a little bit to do with Easter but not enough for my boys to want to read it as an "Easter" book. Nancy's mom hid a few eggs but they didn't do an egg hunt.
