My daughter received this book for her 4th birthday... it is now a nightly ritual. She is a fancy girl and can identify with this beautiful, strong and unique character. The illustrations are lovey. Finally... a book that can be enjoyed by both parents and your 'girly girl' that isn't based on a 'Disney' princess!

My 5 year old granddaughter LOVES the Fancy Nancy books. I love them too. They are educational (stress new words, vocabulary and even though they appear to be girly, girly, Nancy is very independent and into such things as exploring, i.e., nature study, as well as cooking, i.e., tea parties). They have a contemporary flair, i.e., working mothers; a realistic side, i.e., getting carsick and vomiting, and yet are fun and cheerful. I highly recommend them. Caveat: my granddaughter is big into the "princess" stuff, but also has a very independent, tomboy side. This series fits well.

It is a wonderful book! My two year old loves it and now dresses up in all things "fancy Nancy". What I like about it is that it has introduced a few words of French to her, so much so that she pulls them out every so often. Anything that introduces a new language or custom in a fun way is a winner in my book!

Anyone that thinks these books teach bad values are ridiculous! Kids will love this book. Nancy is silly and fun, and very fancy! She has a large vocabulary, but it's introduced in a way that young children will want to start using the words themselves. Nancy also uses French terms regularly - so fancy! - which is a plus for parents that want their children familiar with different languages. Any fancy child will adore these books.

Love the narraration and cute animation on the pages! Just wish there were more interactive pages. The last page is just a coloring page with four colors to choose from.

I purchased this book for my 3-year-old granddaughter. Neither of us knew anything about Nancy. The story is so magical and age appropriate. Then you add the magic of NOOK Kids Read and Play and it is fascinating for all ages. We definitely will be buying more Fancy Nancy adventures.

Great reader! Cute book, but I was disappointed the story wasn't more interactive.

I love these books, If I touch the drawings they come to life and I can hear the narration, stop it, and play it again. It's kind of amazing...

TO those who think it's not right for today's children, your crazy. Half of the things she does are homemade fun not a want, want, want kind of thing. In today's world we need more fancy and silly fun maybe then we wouldn't have so much violence if they were busy dressing up and being frilly instead. I would rather my children read books like these instead of ones that don't captivate their imagination or play. I am sorry but some of the more so called "educational" books don't keep them reading and in the end they may just give it up for a t.v. So keep the whimsy and let your girls keep it too. What is wrong with a little fancy and sophistication?

This is the cutest book I have seen in a while. My daughter, she's 3, absolutely loves this book (and I do too!). It shows that anyone can be fancy and that it's important to have fun with your family. I reccommend it to anyone with a little girl.

Our granddaughter loved being able to buy a book without leaving! And Fancy Nancy taught Grandma a lot about how to play FANCY! I highly recommend this book for any grandparent to share some fancy fun with a loved one!
