Early Readers - Fancy Nancy at the Museum

Ah, we have discovered Fancy Nancy in our home and what a delight she is. Fancy Nancy along with a few other fun books kept us company a few weekends ago on a short trip. The one we acquired was Fancy Nancy at the Museum by Jane O'connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser part of the I Can Read series level 1.

Now as we all know not all Early Reader books are created equal. This particular series I like as it is a bit more on target in my opinion for the age and reading level it addresses. One of the fun things about this book is how the author throws in some “fancy” words that really do add to a kid’s vocabulary like observant and masterpiece.

We haven’t read any of the other Fancy Nancy books, but if they are as engaging as this one we will be on the look out the next time we are at the library. Definitely a cute book for girls getting read to read or just learning to read. Boys may like this particular Fancy Nancy just for the vomit incident, but I doubt they could relate to her overall girlie style.
