Oh, YOU Fancy, huh?

I was prepping for a Girls' Night Out and just as I was taking the final look in the full length mirror,my five year old said, "Mommy, you look exquisite". A natural skeptic, I questioned her, "What does exquisite mean?" She replied, "It means you look beautiful" Her eyes wandered,"No, REAL beautiful". I know my girlie is inherently brilliant but using such a sophisticated word at that age was impressive, especially since it wasn't a word I use frequently at home. Well, where did she pick up the word "exquisite"? I later discovered her teacher was exposing her to Fancy Nancy books. Once I saw the value of Fancy Nancy books I couldn't help but purchase them or check them out at the local library. 
Fancy Nancy is not only worldly, but a wordy young gal. Her vocabulary takes words to the next level. These are not your typical sight words....Nancy even teaches French. The girlies learned how to say "hello" and "goodbye" among other words simply through their exposure to Fancy Nancy (disclaimer: your child will not become fluent, but more for exposure sake). 

Find out more about Fancy Nancy books and the adventures that Fancy Nancy enjoys.
