    This book is not your typical Fancy Nancy books. Yes there is adventure, and yes there are new vocabulary to learn, but this is also a nonfiction book. It has beginning information on things someone might find exploring. It even makes sure to tell you that all the information in this book are real. It was a wonderful read and a great addition to the series.

    Fancy Nancy and her best friend Bree return in this small picture-book, which is part fiction and part non-fiction. The fictional framing device involves the Explorer Extraordinaire club that the girls have formed, in order to observe and study the natural world around them, from insects (including butterflies!) to birds. Naturally, their younger siblings also want to join, and the process whereby that eventually happens forms the crux of the fictional narrative. The bulk of the text, however, is informative, giving lots of details about the insects and birds the girls are studying. Photographs are intermingled with the watercolor artwork, adding to the feeling that this is a half-and-half book...Having read and enjoyed all of the full-sized Fancy Nancy picture-books, which are exclusively fictional (although very informative, as it concerns vocabulary), I was curious to pick up Fancy Nancy: Explorer Extraordinaire!, the first of a number of smaller-sized picture-books that use Nancy and her friends to explore non-fiction topics. All in all, I found this a pleasant and educational book, one which introduces quite a bit of natural history, while also telling an entertaining fictional tale featuring that popular figure, Fancy Nancy. The artwork by Robin Preiss Glasser was as appealing as ever, with the added bonus of photographs. Recommended to Fancy Nancy fans, and to anyone looking for "girly" books that also take a positive approach to things like insects and the outdoors.

    Fancy Nancy and her friend have started up a club and they go off and explorer. The book goes through what essentials you would need to go on an adventure. It is full of great vocabulary words with kid friendly definitions. It also goes through some different types of bugs. Great book to get children to use their imagination.

    This is a cute, light nonfiction-ish read for kids. Nancy and her best friend, Bree, have formed an explorer club and investigate insects, spiders, birds and trees, all while trailed by their younger siblings. Young readers get facts, like the differences between insects and spiders, what makes deciduous trees evergreens, and the differences between moths and butterflies.Nancy also has wonderful suggestions on how to act like a proper naturalist - don't pull leaves or flowers, don't catch butterflies (they're fragile), and leave everything the way you've found it. The story ends with Nancy and her friend's younger siblings finding a baby bird, and, since birds don't mind if a human's touched their young, Nancy's mother puts it back into its nest.And, of course, there are a few charming vocabulary lessons along the way! Recommended.
