Improve Word Power with This Dazzling Reader! The 100th day of school is coming soon, and Nancy's teacher, Mrs. Glass, has asked the class to bring in something special to help celebrate the big day. Nancy worries that she won't be able to come up with a project that's imaginative enough for the occasion. Luckily, Nancy's love of fancy words comes in handy: She decides to make a poster all about her sister's pet goldfish, who has died. And she is delighted to call the poster an homage, which she learns is a fancy word for honoring something. When the 100th day arrives, Mrs. Glass has a surprise of her own: a cart full of 100 books, each of which she promises to read to the class before the last day of school! Fancy Nancy is a little girl with a lot of style — and a humongous vocabulary! In every lively adventure, she offers young readers her own unique version of ordinary childhood experiences, from field trips to classroom celebrations. Additionally, she introduces a rich variety of "fancy" new vocabulary words children can begin using right away! Each book includes a glossary.
