In this beautifully illustrated book, Fancy Nancy shows off her love for butterflies and talks about the excitement she feels for her friends butterfly themed birthday party. Nancy uses the fancy words "devastated" and "furious" to explain how she feels when she finds out she has to miss the party to go out of town for her grandparents anniversary. I find the importance of this story to be a way for children to see the importance of family and the memories you can make, even when things do not go as expected. ( )

I love how this book teaches Fancy Nancy even though she has to miss her friends party doesn't mean she won't have a better time somewhere else. This is great for children because sometimes things come up and you can't make it to a party but it doesn't mean its the end of the world. She ending up getting to do all kinds of fancy stuff and enjoy time with her family which is important. She also gets to go to the butterfly garden which is also super awesome for her. The illustration in this book was amazing yet again. the colors catch your eye. ( )

Nancy is so excited to attend Bree's butterfly-themed birthday, and is "heartbroken...Mad is way too plain for how I feel" when her mother tells her she can't go because it's her grandparents' 50th anniversary party. Nancy sulks, but has fun at the party, apologizes to her parents, and...it turns out there is a butterfly garden at the zoo, so they go there the next morning. ( )

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. ( )
