Fancy Nancy Grows Up!

Fancy Nancy Grows Up in the new Nancy Clancy chapter books. 
My daughter loves these books. 
She has loved Fancy Nancy for as long as I can remember. 

Nancy is spirited and fun and full of life. She takes "dressing up" to a whole new level. Every day she is decked in feathers and sequins and glitter. What little girl wouldn't love Fancy Nancy!

Now she has a new chapter book series. In "Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth", she is a detective, complete with pink trench coat. She is busy solving crimes with her best friend Bree and the results are fun and adventurous. My daughter actually cried when it was over. Nancy is a terrific character and I think my daughter bonded with her while reading it. She was so sad when it was over. 

In the Book 2 of the series, "Nancy Clancy, Secret Admirer," she is trying to get two teenagers to fall in love. I finished reading this to Annabelle in less than a week. It was simply charming. Again, Nancy is such a fun character. She gets into all kinds of trouble trying to arrange the two star-crossed lovers. The result is hilarious and unexpected! 

I love reading chapter books to Annabelle. She is 5 but she has such a rich vocabulary from being read too. She loves listening to me read and I love reading to her. What a great experience for us both!
