As if the sparkles and glitter on the front cover aren’t enough, Fancy Nancy books are so much fun on the inside! That’s why we’ve read the latest Fancy Nancy book every single day this week! Yes, “we”……..you didn’t think Fancy Nancy was just for young girls, did you?
I’m talking about, Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet, the new book in the popular children’s series written by Jane O’Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser.
We love the book so much, a certain 4 yr old I know had to dress-up. Fancy Nancy wouldn’t have it any other way. We even brought her Fancy Nancy ballerina doll along for story-time too.
In the new book, you’ll find Fancy Nancy and her best friend, Bree, in ballet class getting ready for a big performance. In fact, the girls are so excited in the hopes that they’ll both be given the cherished parts of mermaids. Unfortunately, the girls are given the parts of a tree and oyster. They are unhappy, but work hard to be the best they can.
Then there is startling news. And, as only Fancy Nancy can, she explains that startling is a fancy word for “surprising,” only in a bad way. One of the mermaids cannot play the role anymore due to a sprained ankle. Bree is chosen as her replacement. Fancy Nancy is devastated.
A great discussion between Fancy Nancy and her mom takes place about jealousy and friendship. This part of the book can spark a great discussion between parents and their kids…..I love that about books! And Fancy Nancy!
