Fancy Nancy returns with a fun summertime activity for your daughter(s)!

O'Connor, Jane.
Fancy Nancy: Ooh La La! It's Beauty Day!
June 2010.
Review copy provided courtesy of publisher.

It's Nancy's Mom's birthday... and the family has put together the perfect surprise for her, complete with a trip to the spa and a special birthday dinner. Nancy and her sister work to provide their mother with the perfect spa treatment:
  • Fantastique Face Mask
  • Magnificent Manicure
  • Perfectly Posh Pedicure
  • Spa Cuisine
  • Cosmetics
  • Coiffure
At least, it's supposed to be perfect... until Nancy and her sister attempt to style Mom's hair! Then, they must call in the reinforcements, as the hairstyle is "horrible, hideous, horrendous!"

Like all of the Fancy Nancy titles I've read, this is another that will not disappoint! Your little princess will love the idea of a "Beauty Day" and will be inspired at learning all of the new, fancy vocabulary Nancy shares as she goes about her day. Coupled with the activity below, this would make a wonderful surprise for you little one this summer!

Learning/Reading Activity:
  • Allow your daughter to have a sleepover with two or three of her closest friends. Share the book with the girls and then set up a "Spa Day" of your own, using all of the "recipes" that Nancy shares in Fancy Nancy: Ooh La La! It's Beauty Day. The girls will love the both offering and receiving the pampering and the experience of being almost as fancy as Nancy!
