8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Pirate Mom on November 18, 2010
Format: Paperback
My daughter is a Fancy Nancy fan and beginning reader. We have a lot of other "I Can Read" level 1 books. The Fancy Nancy titles are by far the most complex and difficult to read - it's not just the "fancy" words, they are denser, less repetitive and more challenging overall. This makes them more fun to have read to your early reader.

However, my daughter's love of Fancy Nancy is such that she persevered through the book for a half an hour to find out what happened at the end. (Most level 1 series books she whips through in 10 minutes or less.) The story is sweet - I just wish the level was more accurate!

Jane O'Cooner has written a book about appreciating the lives of our grandparents. At a time in children's lives when they are so focused on themselves, it is nice to remind them that WE were once kids like them, too!

My granddaughters haven't seen the book yet, so I don't know what their reaction will be. The book, however, is a steppingstone to a project I have begun for them. I want them to know their family history. Their mother still has multiple relatives who can tell them stories, if someone knows to ask.
Their father -- my son -- has only me. I have some written material, but much of the family history is in my memory only. I wanted a guideline to start writing.
I would recommend this story to young readers who are *curious.* It is a good start to asking questions.

My grandaughter loves the "Fancy Nancy" books. These books are very colorful and have a simple message. There are things on each page to allow the child to point out almost like a seek and find. Books at any age are great for kids but she is almost 5 and we have been captivating her attention with Nancy for 2 years. Very girlie however, so you may want this for your girl rather than a boy.

I love the Fancy Nancy series and am collecting all of the books and some clothing and dolls for my granddaughter. This book is a must-have. It was shipped quickly, arrived in perfect condition and puts me one step closer to having the entire collection.

My daughers (11, 8 and 6) enjoy this cute book! The sentences are more simple, but the words are big and challenging at times. Go with the "My First" I Can Read! books for emerging readers...the level 1 is for kids who can already read well.
