To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I didn't really like these books. They were way too wordy for young children to the point where you could hardly follow the story. Good children's stories need to be concise. These were not good at all. I don't recommend
Fancy Nancy has become a staple in our household (for the fancy vocab) and a favorite of our 3-year-old girl (for the fancy living in general). These four-book package makes for a good discount over the usual books, and the titles it contains lean more toward the educational side than most FN books. The "Explorer" title lists the tools you'll need for a backyard expedition; the "Beauty Salon" story gives all the ingredients to give mom a face mask treatment (including cucumbers for the eyes).
If you're looking for a quick bedtime story, this might not be the set for you -- but if you have an adventurous (and fancy) daughter, it's a great set.
These books are a bit longer then the 5 minute story book I have and the Fancy Nancy readers. But, the pictures and stories are great. I still read them to my daughter, but instead of reading 2 or 3 books I will only read one of these and maybe a shorter book. My daughter likes to look at the pages even though she can not read them. So, we are getting good use out of them.
My daughter LOVES Fancy Nancy! She is 4 and has a lot of the books in the series. This set is great value - four very informative, detailed soft cover books, in a great cardboard pack. I think for her age though she prefers me to read some of the beginner reader books or larger format(hardcover) stories of Fancy Nancy These books a maybe for a older reader - as they are a bit too long for her. They take a while to read to her and are very detailed - more informative, rather than imaginative. Great illustrations, as always - also very educational.
My 5 yr old daughter loves Fancy Nancy and this will be in her Easter Basket as a surprise. Really nice gift set for a starter of Fancy Nancy or if your daughter dosen't have these 4 books in her colleciton just yet.
