In this set of twelve mini-books, New York Times bestselling author Jane O’Connor’s beloved Fancy Nancy helps elementary school kids understand phonics. Learning has never been so fun!
Phonics teaches children the relationship between letters and the sounds they make. A child who has mastered these relationships has an excellent foundation for learning to read and spell. According to the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, a child who has learned phonics has a method to recognize familiar words and “decode” unfamiliar ones.
Fancy Nancy’s lively personality and the full-color illustrations will make learning these vital pre-reading skills enjoyable for parents and children.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This 12 pack is basically watered down versions of other Fancy Nancy Books. They are simpler versions of Delectable Cupcakes, Fancy Day in Room 1A, Sees Stars, Boy From Paris, At the Museum, Mean Girl, Spectacular Spectacles, Too Loose Tooth, Earth Day, Poison Ivy Expert, Dazzling Book Report, the Show Must Go On. My daughter already had all but one of these books and lost interest in the others. I was hoping to find new stories in this pack.
