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!

Great illustrations! Fun to read too. Encourages a little girl to stretch her imagination.

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...

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!

This is an adorable book that uses different words "fancy" words to describe things. My 4 and 2 1/2 year old daughters LOVE this book! I don't mind rereading it too!

This book makes learning vocabulary fun for young children. They love the idea of using 'fancy' words. I would recommend this book (and its sequels) for any teacher or parent wanting to turn their K-5 student on to vocabulary, or reading in general.

I think this is a very humorous book. I had to read it aloud for a Girl Scout project and could barely get through it without laughing out loud!

This is cutest, best illustrated, most charming, funny story for girls. My three year old loves it almost as much as I do!

My read aloud volunteer brought this book to my classroom and it was the best book I've seen all year. It engaged the kids and provided a great springboard for vocabulary development. My kids still use 'fancy' words instead of the same old mundane ones.

I like the synonyms that are taught. Otherwise not a great role model for my child. I do like how the family sticks together though. It is probably ok for the child who is already fancy herself.
