Fancy Nancy Poet – Book Review


Every day in class Fancy Nancy’s teacher reads them a poem. She likes the funny ones. They are all writing poems. Have you ever written a poem?

Fancy Nancy – Poet Extraordinaire! by author and illustrator duo Jane O’Conner and Robin Preiss Glasser

In Fancy Nancy’s class they are doing a survey. They are asking lots of different people the same question. “What is your favorite poem? Then they have to write down the answers. Fancy Nancy learns that there are many different kinds of poems.

Nursery rhymes are poems and the lyrics to songs are also poems. Some poems are long and tell a story. Fancy Nancy’s mom really likes “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe – it a beautiful story about a princess who has died but the guy will love her forever.

Limericks are poems also – a limerick has five lines that rhyme. Poems can be very short and you can also make a poem out of your name by writing the first letter of your name down in a column. Then you need to think up a word that describes you that starts with that letter.

Fancy Nancy goes to her club house to write her poetry, but she now calls it the Palace of Poetry. Necessary for their inspiration - listen to soft music, have a glittery notebook, a pen with fancy feathers, some lovely flowers and refreshments.

When Fancy Nancy has writers block her mom suggests she take a long, long bubble bath, but that doesn’t help. Later, while at the store looking for a card for her grandpa she discovers lots of birthday cards with poems inside. She gets a really good idea and writes a great poem for her teacher. Can you write a poem?







Note: All Fancy Nancy books are from my personal collection.

Who is Fancy Nancy?

Nancy is a darling little girl who believes that more is always better with it comes to being fancy. She loves to be decked out in a fancy tiara and sparkly shoes and is always looking for the opportunity to teach her family more ways to be fancy. The most endearing characteristic of Fancy Nancy is all the big, fancy words she likes to use. She loves words such as “iridescent”, and “ecstatic” and “extraordinary” and loves French words – but she always explains what the words actually mean so without seeming like a lesson she share the opportunity to learn new and fancy vocabulary words.
