Goldilicious, Amelia Bedelia’s First Day of School, and Fancy Nancy Tea Parties

goldiliciousFirst there was Pinkalicious, then there was Purplicious, and now Goldilicious. In this book, Pinkalicious has a new friend and it’s her pet unicorn! Goldilicious prances around the house all day, does a pinkerrific pirouette, and loves to play hide-and-go-seek. Most of all, Goldilicious is always there for Pinkalicious when she needs her friend.

Goldilicious by Victoria Kann; $17.99; HarperCollins

Amelia BedeliaAmelia Bedelia’s First Day of School is not about Amelia Bedelia going to school with her friends, but it’s about Amelia Bedelia’s first day of kindergarten. Even at five years old, Amelia Bedelia was getting into trouble, taking everything literally, and making everyone laugh. Amelia Bedelia hops off the bus, thinks her teacher wants to play tag, learns to run like a cheetah, and glues herself to her chair; and all on the first day of school. By the end of the day, Amelia Bedelia can’t wait for the next day of school.

Amelia Bedelia’s First Day of School, by Herman Parish; $16.99; HarperCollins

Fancy-nancy-tea-partiesOur favorite fancy friend, Nancy Clancy (or Fancy Nancy, as we know her) is back again to teach us how to host fancy tea parties.  This book has wonderful tips for what to wear, how to decorate your table to look extra-fancy, some French words to use in order to sound fancy, and easy-to-make and kid friendly recipes like delectable fruit kebabs and ladybug cookies.  There are even some fancy games for tea parties in this book.  At the end of the book, there are notecards on which to place your favorite  fancy recipes.
