PICTURE BOOK: Fancy Nancy Fashion Boutique by Jane O'Connor
There are two stories that intersect in this Fancy Nancy book. First, Nancy holds a Fashion Boutique sale to sell some of her fabulous fashions so she can raise enough money to buy something else. But when Nancy sells a necklace her sister loves, she realizes it would have been the perfect birthday present for her sister. Nancy will have to sacrifice some of her money to get it back. Then, when her sister's birthday is about to be ruined by a rain storm, Nancy puts on a fashion show to save the party. Her act of kindness earns her a treat which leaves everyone happy in the end. A fun story with all the things readers love about Nancy - fun, fancy illustrations and fun, fancy words.
