We read the Fancy Nancy books with my almost 5 year old daughter. She's had them since she was 3.5. We love to read them over and over. Can't wait for more. Nancy is a very cute character, but the vocabulary is what I love the most about these books. The Fancy Nancy books are filled with new vocabulary words.

Great story, a little above 4 year old reading, but we loved the stretched.

My daughter just finished first grade so she knows the majority of the words and can read the book independently after the first couple of readings. She loves saying Sacajewea! LOL - Cute Story especially for girls.

Fancy Nancy is a excellent book for beginning readers. Nancy uses bigger words but she tells the meaning of the words in the following sentence after each word. Younger girls would really enjoy reading this book. It is about when Nancy's class goes to the Library and she pick out a biography for her book report. Nancy spends way to much time decorating the cover of her book and she does not leave any time to put words into her report. The next day at school, Nancy has to present her report. How will it turn out for her? Read and find out.

I hope I can use this book to spark the love of reading in children. It would also be a great book to have them children predict what is goind to happen. They will probably realize that Fancy Nancy is spending too much time on the picture and not enough time on the words. This can show them the importance of not leaving everything til the last minute when they have a project.

This book features Fancy Nancy and her experience writing her first book report. Nancy gets so wrapped up in making the cover of her book report, an elaborate portrait of Sacajawea, that her book report ends up being only two sentences. She feels embarrassed when other students give lengthy reports on their books. Luckily Nancy's teacher, Ms. Glass, understands and lets Nancy orally share about her book. This story is an easy reader with eight "fancy" new words spread throughout. A list of the words and their definitions can be found at the end of the book. This book teaches children a good lesson about the importance of focusing on the assignment, not the fluff that is not required. Nancy was lucky that her teacher understood, but not all teachers are so lenient. I am a big fan of "Fancy Nancy" books and always enjoy how she teaches us new vocabulary words throughout the story. The illustrations are bright and cheerful and thoroughly illustrate the events of the story.

I loved this book the content and illustrations were amazing. The illustrations give the reader a lot to look at and the story is very engaging. What I really liked the best about it was not only did it have a glossary for some of the challenging words in the story, O¿Connor also worked the definitions of the words on the pages they appeared on which makes it very convenient for children who don¿t always go to the glossary when they don¿t know the definition of some of the words they come across.

I think this would be a great book for students to read in groups. It is easy enough reading for the students to read, but some words are a little challenging so it would be nice to have other students around to help them. A teacher might also want to introduce this book when they are planning to assign a book report. This book will help them understand what a book report is and how to handle it.

I read the original Fancy Nancy book to my nieces, and, at the time, thought that the effect of Nancy stopping every other word to explain that "That's a fancy word for so-and-so" was a little annoying. Having now read several of the early readers, I can honestly say that it is MUCH less annoying when you're not the one reading the book aloud!My niece (who is six and entering the first grade in a week!) found this book easy enough to read with only a little help from me. Help largely consisted of asking her to sound out a word a second time, asking her if the sentence "makes sense" the way she read it, or asking if she's SURE she saw a d (or b, or w) in that word. There were a few words I had to read *for* her, but not more than I'd expect from this style of book. However, it should be noted that she was one of the better readers in her kindergarten class.The "fancy words" in this book range from the useful - biography, select - to the more fanciful - crestfallen, plume.I'm a little surprised at how much Nancy's parents enable the "learning lesson" at the end. They don't just let her work on the cover to the exclusion of everything else (albeit with a few warning comments that she needs to leave time for the REPORT part of the report), they actively take her to the store to get the supplies for this. (Apparently beads + yarn + fringe = INDIAN.) And Nancy's teacher is also super-understanding - she tells Nancy to just tell them about the book, so far so good, but she doesn't tell her to make up her report that night. That strikes me as a little unrealistic.I'm also concerned with some of the misconceptions shared in this book. Nancy repeats the line about Sacajawea being an "Indian princess", which she plainly wasn't. Nobody said that about her until a good 70 years after her death, in fact. As that's just about the only information we get about her in this book (which isn't about Sacajawea, so that's fair), it's a little disappointing that it's wrong.I will also note that there are an awful lot of sentences on each page. This is a good book for kids in the later stage of "beginning readers", I think, not in the very early stage.
