No one does Halloween like a Fancy Nancy Halloween! These two darling books feature the irrepressible Nancy in her full curly, girly magic. Fans of the series will not want to miss either one of these cute books!
Fancy Nancy: Halloween...or Bust!
Nancy loves dressing up and loves Halloween, but when she has a little costume malfunction, it's up to the readers to help her solve it. (She's dressed as a bunch of grapes made of balloons, and some of them pop. Readers use stickers to help her create a costume again.)
Of course, this makes using this book multiple times in a classroom a challenge. You can solve this dilemma by laminating the stickers ahead of time, cutting them out, and then putting them in a envelope taped to the inside cover.
Fancy Nancy: Candy Bonanza
Kids can certainly relate to the problem posed in this book! Nancy is trick or treating and is so excited about all the candy that she's getting that she can't help herself from eating them right away. The result is a tummy ache for poor Fancy Nancy! This isn't our favorite in the series, but it's fun for Halloween.
