Nancy Clancy is back in New York Times bestselling team Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser's third Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy chapter book—about seeing the future! Nancy thinks she may be able to read the future . . . and all signs point to her being a true clairvoyant (that's fancy for a fortune-teller). In the perfect follow-up to Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth and Nancy Clancy, Secret Admirer, Nancy tries her hand at fortune-telling but quickly learns it's a bit more complicated than she thought. Does Nancy really have special powers, or is it all just a coincidence?

Fans of Fancy Nancy will love joining Nancy Clancy in the latest addition to the chapter book series. The central theme of all the Nancy Clancy books shines through, showing the power of positive thinking.

Genre: Realistic FictionReview: The author stays true to the genre of realistic fiction by creating a believable story about a little girl and her class who are study the stars. The prepare for a fieldtrip to the planetarium. Media: Acrylicmore
A nice entry in the Fancy Nancy series -- kids learn about astronomy and stars, which is fun and delightful, but then suffer a crushing disappointment: A storm prevents them from getting to the planetarium! They find a way to have fun anyway. So, nice for showing crafts & excitement about stars and planets, and also for coping with the disappointment of best-laid plans which have gang agley.more
This is the 1st Fancy Nancy she read. Nancy's class was taking a night trip to the planetarium but a storm keeps everyone from going. Nancy's parents take her and a friend into the back yard to look at the stars where she sees a meteor. The next day the teacher says next week we will go seeing everyone missed the trip because of the storm.more
I read the original Fancy Nancy book to my nieces, and, at the time, thought that the effect of Nancy stopping every other word to explain that "That's a fancy word for so-and-so" was a little annoying. Having now read several of the early readers, I can honestly say that it is MUCH less annoying when you're not the one reading the book aloud!My niece (who is six and entering the first grade in a week!) found this book easy enough to read with only a little help from me. Help largely consisted of asking her to sound out a word a second time, asking her if the sentence "makes sense" the way she read it, or asking if she's SURE she saw a d (or b, or w) in that word. There were a few words I had to read *for* her, but not more than I'd expect from this style of book. However, it should be noted that she was one of the better readers in her kindergarten class.The "fancy" words in this book range from the more useful (planetarium) to the more obscure (al fresco). I will note that this book writes "al fresco" as one word, which is very annoying for the simple reason that it is wrong.I also want to say that there are some areas that show a really fun way of using language - the sentence "sprinkles make them sparkle" has become my private catchphrase du jour! (That's a fancy word for "of the day", as in "soup du jour of the day".) And while it doesn't take poetic genius to compare how the rain goes "drip drip drip" with how Nancy's tears go "drip drip drip", it is the sort of sentence you don't always see in early readers - as though authors think that poetry or fun will make the book hard to read!I will also note that there are an awful lot of sentences on each page. This is a good book for kids in the later stage of "beginning readers", I think, not in the very early stage.more
The Fancy Nancy books are wonderful realistic fiction books. Nancy could be a real girl that loves words and learning new things. These easy reader Fancy Nancy books will hopefully inspire readers to learn new words and new information about interesting subjects as well. Fancy Nancy certainly loves what she is learning about in this books, stars and meteors that sparkle and shine.more
This is a really cute book that's pretty educational too. Nancy and her class are learning about stars and constellations and the book teaches what constellations are and a little bit about the solar system. Nancy and her class are supposed to go to a planetarium, but the field trip gets rained out and it's cancelled until next week. Her family ends up having their own little sky show at home so things turn out ok. The Fancy Nancy books are great because they expose kids to "fancy" words. In this book, some of the words they learn are orbit, brilliant, and al fresco. I think it's a great idea to mix these words into books for young kids so they get some good vocabulary exposure at a young age, even if they don't remember the definitions. It makes the book more fun.more
