Not My Favorite Fancy Nancy Title
Reviewed in the United States on June 26, 2009
I do enjoy reading the Fancy Nancy books, especially sharing them with my little girl, Nancy. However, though I've never been disappointed in these books, some of the Fancy Nancy titles are better than others. This is good, but it's not one of my favorites.
I like the idea a lot. Encouraging kids to read and understand what they've read is important. However, as a parent and teacher, I think I'm a bit discouraged by the fact that Nancy gets away with one here. She doesn't complete her book report and both her parents and teacher give her a bit of a pass. Not to say that such things don't happen in real life and shouldn't happen sometimes, but I don't feel it's as strong a lesson as we find in some of the other books.
Still, Fancy Nancy books are always fun to read. I'm glad we have it.
