Cute story about an impatient little girl who breaks her new tree-topper ornament - that she bought with her birthday money. She and her grandpa make a new one out of pom-poms, paper plates, glitter and bows, which is destined to become an heirloom. These books introduce big words in a fun way. This book is perfect for a 4 or 5 year old little girl who loves to dress up. I've caught my granddaughter picking it up and leafing through the pages numerous times. The illustrations have details that can easily be passed over the first time you read the book. The paper cover of the book is glittery, but the actual cover is not. The book arrived in excellent condition, as has every book I've ordered from Overstock.com.
This book helps little girls (boys too) enjoy the world of imagination and introduces them, in a fun, subtle way, to the meaning of new and interesting words. I have found all the Fancy Nancy books to be exciing to read, to watch the eyes of my grandchildren sparkle as the pages turn - waiting with anticipation to find out what happens next.
Fancy Nancy is a favorite with all my daughters and granddaughters. We love the fancy words and the fancy illustrations. The little girls love to dress like Fancy Nancy and talk like her as well. I always check Overstock when I am looking for a new book and usually find the very best price here.
I purchased this gift along with another Fancy Nancy book to put a "fancy gift pack" together as a Christmas gift. Along with the other "fancy girlie" items (nail polish, feather boa etc.) these book were perfect as well as educational (the introduction of "fancy" words in the story)! I hope it's as enjoyed as I am excited about giving the gift!
