My 6 yr old granddaughter loved this book so much that she called me from 3,000 miles away to read to me over the phone. She is very "girly" who loves dogs so I thought this would be a perfect choice and it was. Her pre-school has a few of the series so she was excited to read. I had to help her with a few French words when Nancy gets fancy with her speech. But, they are common words everyone knows and easy for the young to remember. Pictures are very large, colorful and glittered. I promised to buy her more of, "Fancy Nancy" and hope the author will continue to write more.
This is a cute sequel to the original Fancy Nancy book. I got this for my four year old daughter's recent birthday. Even though it wasn't on her wish list, she was excited to receive this book. She loves the predominant use of pinks, purples, glitter, and "fancy" language. I have read the book to her several times since she received it last week! It even inspired her to make fancy the stair banisters in our house by wrapping her pink feather boas around them! This book and the original are must reads for all fancy little girls and big girls!
Our granddaughter LOVES Fancy Nancy, she is quite fancy herself and delights in Nancy's escapades. We love Fancy Nancy for the inventive, vocabulary building text. It flows so well and introduces new words on every page. Our little 6 year old has quickly added these "other ways" to describe things into her own vocabulary with an equally breezy style ... you rock, Fancy Nancy.
My two girls ages 6 and 3 loved the first Fancy Nancy book, so when I saw this one I just knew we HAD to have it. When I saw the VERY reasonable price it was a nobrainer and I ordered it right away. It is very entertaining and a great story. As always, there are lessons to be learned but not very informative. That's not the point of these great stories. Any girl who loves fuscia (a fancy word for purple) and wants to be posh (a fancy word for fancy) will adore Fancy Nancy and her adventures!!
