Fancy Nancy's class has been given an assignment to write about an ancestor and report on it in class. Fancy Nancy learns the value of sticking to the facts instead of embellishing her story with things which she might think are more interesting. I guess the moral of the story is the old proverb: Honestry is the best policy. This simple children's book introduces children to the concept of genealogy and ancestors while introducing and explaining a few vocabulary words. The illustrations are pretty typical of the Fancy Nancy series of books. I like their whimsical nature, but some people might think they are a little frilly. If I were using this book with children who want to learn more about their ancestors, I would make sure that part of the discussion focused on sticking to the facts in genealogical research.

This is a wonderful book that introduces a few fancy vocabulary words in each book. The illustrations complement the story so well. Children can enjoy reading and learning new terms while reading for fun.

We both - me and my daughter, love Nancy's "dilemas". So there was a quest from school - to bring family photos, so we were watching albums, talking about family members known and unknown by my little girl, and I thought, that it could be nice to know if Nancy had a family photo event at school as well - and there it was!!! What to say, it is good to have a character, who can have some adventure in every ordinary situation our kids experience as well.
