I bought this book/CD for my 4 year old. She likes Fancy Nancy and enjoys "reading" along with the narration on the CD. Cute story.

Fancy Nancy goes on a field trip to the museum, using "fancy" words to describe the things around her. On the trip, Nancy goes through an emotional rollercoaster of excitement for the museum, discomfort after eating too much and getting on a bumpy school bus, and then excitement again after using her teacher's creativity to fashion a new outfit after the one she was wearing was ruined by her motion sickness. Nancy's use of big words - and then defining them - is a great way to introduce young readers to the fun of learning new vocabulary. The illustrations are bright and active, using swirling fluid lines and lots of pinks and purples that are sure to attract young female readers. I would recommend this book for the children's section of a public library.

Fancy Nancy goes to the museum where she learns new words and describes the things around them and then gives the meanings of the words.

Nancy likes to make everything to be fancy. She uses fancy words for simple things, adorns herself in fancy clothes and accessories, and delights in flourishes, sparkles, and hyperbole. In this I Can Read! level 1 book, Nancy is going on a field trip to an art museum. She has dressed up for the occassion and is really excited, but on the bus trip she gets sick. Nancy is really upset because she gets some vomit on her fancy clothes, but her teacher Ms. Glass saves the day. Nancy goes on to enjoy the art museum in all its fanciness and paints a picture for Ms. Glass to thank her.Beginning readers, especially those who enjoyed having Fancy Nancy picture books read to them, will enjoy and appreciate this Level 1 book. Sentences are short or broken up into short lines, the plot is relevant to their lives, and the vocabulary is mostly simple and supported by illustrations or other contextual clues. The author has skillfully incorporated the types of long or unusual "fancy" words that Nancy is so fond of by having Nancy explain many of them in parentheses, e.g. "I am overjoyed. (That's a fancy word for very happy.)," or having the adults in the book define unfamiliar words in a teacherly manner, such as when Ms. Glass tells the class "Today we will see masterpieces! That's a fancy word for great paintings." There is also a glossary at the back that defines the eleven "fancy words" in the book, including pronunciations for the French words "beret" and "merci." The in-text definitions and the glossary can help teach vocabularly-building strategies for young readers when teachers and parents model their use and encourage young readers to find out the meanings of unfamiliar words in other books by asking or looking in the glossary or a dictionary.This story is exciting and likely to hold the interest of girls between the ages of five and seven, as the field-trip storyline may not be relevant to younger readers even if they are reading at this level and older children may seek more detailed plots. Full-color illustrations support the story without dominating pages or interfering with the text. This is a great early-reader choice for children's and elementary school libraries.

My almost five-year old daughter enjoys the Fancy Nancy series. Some of the words are a bit difficult for her age, but the book is a good tool for advancing her vocabulary. She is in a French language program, so I like the French themes and words interspersed throughout the series. I read this particular book to my daughter before our visit to a museum, and I thought it made for nice discussion of what she could expect to see.
