Another amazing set of Fancy Nancy stories to please both parents and their little kids! This is the second storybook collection to be released for Fancy Nancy, this one focusing on fall themed stories. It includes the stories, " Halloween or Bust, Fancy Day in Room 1-A, Splendid Speller, Apples Galore, The 100th Day of School, and Our Thanksgiving Banquet." These stories have a few too many words for the less patient under-three crowd, but should delight the 3+ crowd. I love that it teaches new vocabulary words, and the stories are always cute, different (so you don't get bored), and interesting. I also enjoy that a lot of the Fancy Nancy books have a moral to the story. I definitely recommend this collection for your fall reading enjoyment.
The pictures are beautiful, as always with Fancy Nancy books. Four of the six stories do have an odd layout. The story is narrow in the center of the page with an orange and white autumn themed border on both sides. I can see how us adults may find this aesthetically unappealing, but to young readers who have no preconceived notions about what is easy on the eyes this is a beautiful book. While I find the borders to be distracting and bothersome that only 4 of the 6 stories have a border, my daughter is not bothered by this. Still great story lines and illustrations. Stories that are included: halloween or bust, fancy day in room 1-a, splendid speller, apples galore, the 100th day of school, our thanksgiving banquet.
I ordered two of these for each set of granddaughters to see fall arrive. They were so pleased and immediately settled in to read them. There are 6 stories in this book, which is a deal breaker so you do not have to pay for six books or even store six books. Definitely pleased with order.
This was a gift to my grand daughter. She loved it. I am pleased how the Fancy Nancy stories increase vocabulary purposely, reviewing the words and definitions at the end of the stories. They are a good fit with my grand daughter since she is a "Fancy Nancy" kind of person.
Bought this for my 5 year old daughter and she has fallen in love with Fancy Nancy. She tries to repeat all of the "Fancy" words and it's so much fun to read them to her and act out the "fancy" parts. GREAT BOOK!
This is a hard-cover collection of Fancy Nancy stories. I bought it for my kids to enjoy in the Fall, but some stories are not necessarily Fall-themed, like the classroom stories. I like to keep seasonal books stored away with holiday décor to bring out as a special treat during the season, so I did that with this one after we'd read each story. I'm looking forward to reading the Halloween, Thanksgiving, and apple-picking stories with my kids as those events approach this Fall. The illustrations are my favorite aspect of the Fancy Nancy books, and my 3 year old daughter loves the glitz and glamour of Nancy. I also like reading the extra-fancy words to her to boost our everyday vocabulary at home. Fancy Nancy is a splendid series. This is a nice collection at a fabulous price. Enjoy!
I want to start off by saying that I order tons of children's books... they are sort of my "thing." I treasure good ones, love to read them to my child, and frequently give books as gifts. I am shocked by the good reviews that this book received... It includes 6 stories and is a nicely-sized square book. However, the illustrations for the first 5 stories take up only 1/2- 2/3 of each page! The outer third of each page (if you imagine it being divided vertically) is nothing more than a background pattern. It looks like an easy-reader size book converted to a square story book, but done in the cheapest way possible. I love the Fancy Nancy stories and how they introduce more complex words into the child's vocabulary... But because of the layout of this book, I didn't even want to read the stories... I can't imagine a child being engaged in it! I should have known that the low price was too good to be true... In this case, I got what I paid for.
My 2 1/2 year old daughter received this as a gift and absolutely loves it. She asks to read "Fancy Fancy" on a daily basis and wants to play dress-up to be fancy too. It is a cute collection of stories, and I love that there are six within the same hardcover book. I plan on purchasing more Fancy Nancy books for her in the future.
