Jane O'Connor's story is about a little girl who loves being fancy (you should see her room!). No one seems to understand that lace-trimmed shoes do help her play soccer better, and sandwiches definitely taste better with frilly toothpicks stuck in them; but, Nancy eventually convinces her unfancy family to fancy up and go out to dinner one evening. They all have a great time until disaster falls (well, not really a big deal in the scheme of things, but certainly so to a very young fancy lady). She finds out her family still loves her even when they all end up covered in ice cream sundaes...oops, I mean parfaits. She also learns that there's no fancy way to tell someone you love him/her, except to say, "I love you."
This book is precious beyond words. I'm having second thoughts about parting with it. I might have to get another copy for my little one. Oh yes, and it's up for a Quill award (consumer choice award)in the best children's illustrated book category. The awards take place this very next week (Oct 10) in New York City.
One thing I know for sure: I know how I'm going to fancy up my black pumps when my husband and I go steppin' out tonight!

I am buying two copies - one for my seventy-three year old mother who is a "Fancy Nancy" herself and also for myself... my children may borrow it to read, but I will keep it in my room to read-aloud and laugh and laugh and laugh!
Oh - a special nod, too, for the "fancy" illustrations. Loved each and every one.
I know that some people get hung up on things like "why do we need to encourage material possessions or encourage our girls to dress up, etc." but, c'mon, it's just a fun book that your child will want to read many times for many years. My farm girl daughter isn't fancy at all but she loves it just the same.
Encouragers in a strong family really can help each member to be creative and happy! And, isn't it nice to see a successful, family with a mother and father back in literature again?
What a terrific story to help introduce vocabulary development! Readers will be motivated to learn fancy French words and replace "plain" words with "fancy" words. Research says there is a strong link between vocabulary and success! Nancy is on her way!
The brilliant illustrations by Robin Preiss Glasser in Fancy Nancy bring the text and story to life and extend discussion possibilities.
