SIMPLE TEXT: Minimal text that really suits the board book format
EXQUISITE ARTWORK: The expressive linework and intricate paper sculptures will have readers of all ages poring over the pages of this book. This is a board book that is coffee-table worthy.
AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR: Cybèle Young is one of Canada’s most talented and acclaimed picture book creators.
BROAD APPEAL: This is a book that should do well in a number of markets—trade, school/library and specialty (museum, art, gift stores)—and have a wide readership.
EYE-SPY ELEMENT: Kids will love going back and finding clues throughout to the thing that Nancy has forgotten—her playdate with her friend Oscar!
CURRICULUM FRIENDLY: Lots of curriculum links including visual arts, mathematics, numeracy, geometry and language arts.
PRAISE FOR Nancy Knows:

“Young’s paper constructions that will have readers returning to these pages again and again.”—Starred Review, Publishers Weekly
