We really liked this book series for our 4 year old daughter. She is especially girly and the pretty covers are attractive to her and she thinks the story lines are silly. We are definately happy wiht our purchase and will continue to support Fancy Nancy.

This is a great story. My daughter enjoys reading it because it is colorful and fun. She loves that the little girl gets so FANCY. I love reading this and FANCY NANCY for several reasons. The artistry is well done and so colorful. The storyline is great and both stories are cute thorughout and end with a purpose. For example, Fancy Nancy ends with telling you that there is no fancy way of saying 'I love you.' These books are well worth the money and the time spent reading with your children.

This was a great book for my 3 kids. They loved the antics and the colorful words that are used throughout this book. It is hard for me to find books that they like, and I was happy to order this along with another great book called Nose Pickin'. I recommend these great books for those of you with kids!

This book (and Fancy Nancy)is a reading staple for both of my girls ages 3 and 18 months. I love that the character is relatable yet still challenging due to the vocabulary and introduction to basic French. C'est tres bien! Looking forward to the next one.

I adored this book as will many kindergarten through second grade children. Fancy Nancy is part of a series about a little girl named Nancy who likes to dress-up and as she says ¿be fancy.¿ In this book Nancy wants to adopt a dog and she wants a fancy dog like her neighbor¿s Papillion. What I thought that was extremely creative was that this book tries to expand children¿s vocabulary a fun way. It even uses and explain French words! Since it has a lot of pink and girly themes to it, boys may not find it as intriguing as girls do. In addition, the vocabulary might be too complex for younger children to read by themselves, but the pictures are fun and colorful. Overall, a real treat for Fancy Nancy fans. I highly recommend it.

In ¿Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy¿, Fancy Nancy gets her first dog. She wants a fancy breed like the dog her neighbor has, but after puppy-sitting Nancy realizes that maybe it¿s not the perfect kind of dog for her family. The family ends up adopting a fancy dog named Frenchy from the local shelter. Along the way, Nancy learns some things about how to take care of a dog and make sure it is happy.The ¿Fancy Nancy¿ books are an excellent example of the ways in which picture books can sometimes be more beneficial than early chapter books ¿ Nancy loves to use big words and then explain what they mean or how to pronounce them; these books are entertaining and educational (without kids realizing it). Fancy Nancy is a fun character and girls especially will love following her exploits. PreK ¿ 1st grade.

I am a huge fan of the Fancy Nancy books, and "Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy" is not exception. Nancy is a little girl who likes to dress fancy and use fancy words like "ensembles" and "posh". In this story, Nancy and her family are planning to get a dog, but Nancy is particular in the kind of dog she wants to get (a fancy one, of course!). The language used in this books is wonderful. Nancy uses high vocabulary and French words which she translates and explains to the reader. This is a great way to increase a child's vocabulary. Because of the translations, the text is simple enough for a read aloud to children ages 3 and up, and independent reading for children second grade and up. However, the story and illustrations are more appealing to girls than boys.The illustrations are very colorful and detailed, yet not overwhelming. There is a lot of white background that make the illustrations clear. Also, the illustrations do a great job matching the text.If you enjoyed this book, try the other Fancy Nancy books. Also, try the Angelina Ballerina books by Katharine Holabird.

This is a cute and energetic book about a girl who wants a fancy dog. The way the writters adds "that's a fancy word for..." is so fun for a child to learn those bigger words.It is a book that should be read to a child, a child reading by themselves will have a hard time (in my opinion) with getting the story to flow, which is what makes this such a fun and exciting book. If an adult reads, this story is good for kids of any age.

My daughter is a huge Fancy Nancy fan. This book was a reward for her report card grades(In our house good grades are rewarded with good books). The illustrations are fun and the story is cute. The pictures are bright and my little girl loves being fancy. Fancy Nancy will be a main stay with our family for years to come.

Fancy Nancy illustrates the attitude of some people when they select a dog. Concerned more about cuteness than what is good for them. Every family member should read this book before buying a dog. Perhaps this would eliminate the dog being discarded when expectations are dampened.
