My 5-year-old, Kate, is a huge fan of the Fancy Nancy books, and I must admit that I am too. The illustrations are beautifully detailed and simply adorable. The stories are sweet, but not sickly so; the voice is just right, and the “fancy” vocabulary words (exquisite, extraordinary, fuchsia) and smattering of French terms are a nice plus for my precocious daughter. It’s a no-brainer that Fancy Nancy would become a brand all her own – we were ecstatic to try one of the new 100-piece puzzles featuring our favorite girly girl and her posh puppy, Frenchy. Kate is at the age where she’s getting more confident about doing harder puzzles, and the glittery pieces were a big hit. We’re definitely up for checking out more games from Nancy.
