Nancy, the fanciest picture-book heroine of them all, returns in this third picture-book devoted to her adventures, this time looking forward to her best friend Bree's birthday party, which will have a butterfly theme. She is furious (a fancier word for mad) when her mother tells her that she cannot go, because her grandparents' 50th Anniversary celebration is the same day. But her experiences at the elegant (a fancier word for fancy) hotel and party soon put her in a better mood, as does the family's visit to the local zoo's butterfly exhibit.

Like its predecessors, Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly pairs an engaging tale of a high-spirited young girl with cute, colorful artwork. Also like its predecessors, there are plenty of vocabulary lessons built into the narrative, as Nancy uses "fancy" words that she then explains to the reader. I found the central crisis here believable - often children lack the emotional resources to adequately deal with disappointment, and respond with sulking or anger - and the resolution heartwarming. Nancy's parents are certainly very tolerant! Recommended to anyone who has read and enjoyed other Fancy Nancy titles. ( )

Just like the other Fancy Nancy book I read, previously, this book is very good! The language also has advanced adjectives just as the last book. However, in addition, this book includes some words in French. Nancy makes speaking French seem “fancy” and she enjoys speaking it for fun. I like this about the character because I think it can entice young readers to want to learn a language too. Secondly, just as the other book, this book teaches a good lesson for children. Nancy was so upset and mad at her mother for telling her that she could not go to her friend’s birthday party. However, in the end, Nancy had a blast at her grandparent’s anniversary party and apologized to her mother for being rude. This teaches children that even though you may miss something really fun, something better will always come along in the end! Overall, this book was just as enjoyable as the other Fancy Nancy books and has great features for readers. ( )
