This One's for the Girls!!

For any girly girls... whether you know one or you are one (I admit I am!) this is the news you've all been waiting for...

*drum roll*

Bonjour Butterfly, the third in the insanely popular Fancy Nancy series is arriving in bookstores (and libraries!) on February 5th! Not to brag, but I knew how popular this book was going to be from the first moment I laid eyes on it, weeks before it first became a New York Times bestseller. The first two books, Fancy Nancy and Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy, both stayed on that list forever. Along with the third picture book in the series, the author, Jane O'Connor is also releasing the Fancy Nancy early reader books. The first two are Fancy Nancy and the Boy from Paris and Fancy Nancy at the Museum. Fancy Nancy's Favorite Words: From Accessories to Zany is coming out April 22nd. The early readers look like a level 1 book, so they're for beginner readers... minimal words on the page. The picture books are geared toward the preschool to first grade crowd, but I know a certain 24 year old 3rd grade teacher who went nuts over this fancy little girl! And moms of my preschoolers love the books, too! This is not a book to grow bored with after repetitive (and it will be repetitive) readings. There's glitter on some of the pages!

If you've been there, done that with the Fancy Nancy, just ask for more... there are plenty more titles on the tip of my tongue! Pinkalicious and Purplicious, the Angelina Ballerina books, Do Princesses Really... books, the Priscilla books and Double Pink just to name a few!
