Fancy Nancy: The Dazzling Book Report PDF Print E-mail

What You Need to Know:
• Fancy Nancy continues her fancy-schmancy ways in Fancy Nancy: The Dazzling Book Report.
• Serious synonym/thesaurus modeling going on here.
• Due to the fancy (read: complicated) language, an emergent reader will have a challenging time reading this on their
  own, at first. Keep it as a shared reading for the first few reads, as to not damage a new reader.
• The illustrations are charming, but not enough picture clues for the newest readers.
• This would make a much better (and entertaining!) read aloud, than an independent read for a new reader.
• This book has been nomintated for a 2009 Cybil Award. Please click the Cybils link on the left side of the page to

Sweet Book Summary:
Fancy Nancy has been assigned her very first book report! She has picked a biography of Sacajawea. Fancy Nancy gets to work immediately on her dazzling book report cover, "that's fancy for eye-popping". But Fancy Nancy spends so much time on her cover, she doesn't leave enough time to actually write a report. When she stands up the next day to recite her report, she unveils her cover to the class, and then sadly reveals to her teacher she didn't actually have enough time to write anything. The teacher helps Fancy Nancy realize she still knows a lot about Sacajawea, and Fancy Nancy is able to give a report from memory.
