NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 1

Fancy Nancy: Saturday Night Sleepover
by Jane O'Connor. February 2016. 32 pages.

From Amazon: "When Nancy's parents win an all-expenses-paid vacation, Nancy and JoJo get to sleep over at their neighbor's home, Mrs. DeVine's. But JoJo is a little nervous to sleep at someone else's house—luckily Nancy is an expert on sleepovers and can help prepare her little sister. The big night arrives, and JoJo and Nancy have a blast at Mrs. DeVine's. But when it's time for bed, it turns out Nancy wasn't as prepared as she thought. Good thing there is nothing better than a sister to make you feel better."

My thoughts: I love Fancy Nancy! Last year was the 10th anniversary of the first book, and O'Connor continues to write great stories that are relatable to kids. This one helps them work through the fears they might have about staying overnight at someone else's house for the first time. I love the interaction between the sisters, because it reminds me so much of the personalities of my own girls.

Recommended Age: 4-8 years
