All of the Fancy Nancy books are fantastic, but Tea for Two was always one of our favorites.


Fancy Nancy Books are Great for Little Girls

My nearly 10-year-old daughter has outgrown her Fancy Nancy book collection, but these books including Tea for Two still set on the shelves of her playroom bookcase. Why have I held onto these books?

Well, these books were one of the very first books that my daughter could read on her own, so the collection has a special place in my heart. The other reason I have held onto these books is because they feature a spunky main character with a bigger than life personality and I just can't seem to part with them.

Fancy Nancy LOVES Everything Fanciful

No matter which book you read in the collection, you will immediately recognize that Nancy is an extremely unique little girl. She lives in a rather ordinary house, but goes above and beyond to make everything around her extraordinary.

She often dresses up, has a huge imagination, and likes to use words that are rather fancy, especially for someone her age.

Fancy Nancy: Tea for Two Synopsis

In this book, Nancy is invited to her dear friend Bree's house for tea. At first the two girls get along splendidly and are having a marvelous time, (that's a fancy word for great).

However, when Nancy wants to make the tea party a bit more elaborate, Bree objects and a mini cat fight erupts. Eventually, the girls are able to work together and continue having a fabulous time, but each of them learns an important lesson about friendship.

Why I Love this Book as a Mom

As a mom, I love the theme of these books. No matter what your personality is, if you are confident about who you are, no one else can bring you down and this series gets that message across in a fantastic way. I also love the fancy words in the book.

My daughter always got such a big kick out of learning new words from Nancy and in case she couldn't draw contextual clues from the text and pictures, each Fancy Nancy book has a glossary towards the back that explains the splendidly descriptive words in detail.

Read the Entire Fancy Nancy Series

Once little girls and early readers get their hands on their first Fancy Nancy book, they will quickly want more. The great thing is there is an entire series based on this red-haired little princess.

      Well you know I HAD to read this lens for obvious reasons. I think a word I always loved was pugnacious, because I had a little pug, and it so suits them. I guess I'm going to have to read this book, because I think it hits pretty close to home, hahahaha!
