Sometimes a girl just wants to be fancy. For Nancy, though, it’s not just sometimes – it’s ALL the time!
For this pint-sized diva, the title character of the book Fancy Nancy by Jane O’Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser, being fancy is the only way to be. And while Nancy loves her family, she’ll admit that they are a little bit…ordinary. Mundane. Typical.
She, on the other hand, lives by the adage that “more is always better when it comes to being fancy.” More sprinkles. More frou-frou French words. More, oh, everything! Her favorite color? Fuchsia – which is a fancy way to say purple, after all!
But even though Nancy loves the fancy, and even though she tries to convince herself that fancy is the only way to go, she learns a lesson in this delightful book that sometimes your plain, old ordinary family is just what provides the most comfort in an embarrassing situation. What’s more, sometimes the most simple words mean the most.
They are great books for ages 4 and up.
