Book Review: Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet by Jane O'Connor
In "Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet," by Jane O'Connor, Fancy Nancy and her best friend, Bree, couldn't be more excited about their upcoming dance show. After all, it's all about mermaids - and who knows how to be a fancy, glamorous mermaid better than Fancy Nancy herself? But when another ballerina wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. Can Nancy bring fancy flair to her role, even though it isn't the one she wanted? And when disaster strikes right before the big ballet, who will step in to steal the spotlight?
My kids can not get enough of Nancy. They loved this book and learned a lot about not always being the person with the attention on them all the time. It was worth reading them the story. We loved the colors that the illustrator created. They help tell the story and were able to keep all three of my kids interested in the story. Nancy and her vocabulary and how she breaks it down helps my kids vocabulary expand. I recommend this story to preschoolers and kindergartners.
