My four year old loves this book. Really she loves all the read to me books. The little girls voice used to read the story entertains her and I overhear her imitating it at times.

Fancy Nancy is a funny group of books following Nancy and her daily routines. In "The Show must go on" Nancy's teacher informs the class that they will be having a performance, however Ms. Glass is assigning partners "The means we don't get to choose."Throughout the book, the author gives alternate meanings to the bigger works, such as applause, assign, brainstorm, Kimono, mansion, and adorable. I really like how this is worked into the story. It helps the beginning reader build their vocabulary.A great story for the later beginning reader.

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 revelation that Nancy makes that "Oh, you like LIONS because your name is LIONEL" is especially cute, and the story about befriending a shy kid you think you don't have anything in common with, though it's an overdone topic, is handled well. (Besides, maybe kids this age don't know it's a common topic yet.)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.

I had never read Fancy Nancy until I decided to read it for my Children's Literature class. I knew it was quite popular with the young kids today. I was curious why it was so popular. It was cute. I like how the author explains to the reader what the words mean. This is a really nice feature for kids just learning to read.
