As with all Fancy Nancy books, Nancy is brought to life using her fancy words and definitions, giving young readers the chance to learn new vocabulary. The story is straightforward and the plot is easy to understand. The message of the story, however seemed a bit unclear. Was the point more that saving the Earth is important, or that Nancy should not have been so bossy. By dividing that focus, the message of the story is diluted.
I guess you can interpret this book in one of two ways. On the one hand, it is rather preachy about going green and "saving" the Earth, but - on the other hand - it also shows what can happen when you cross the fine line between responsibility and annoying bossiness in pursuit of a cause. Fancy Nancy tends to go a little overboard on new things, and that is definitely the case here. Having just learned about Earth Day and the importance of caring for the planet, she takes it upon herself to make every day Earth Day, and her well-intentioned actions at home end up causing a few problems within her household. She learns the hard way not to be so bossy and overzealous, and I think it is this lesson (on the importance of respecting the rights and wishes of the other members of her family), that proves to be the most valuable message this cute little book communicates to its target audience of emerging readers. This is definitely not my favorite Fancy Nancy book, though.
