User Review  - cc36shopper - Walmart

My 5 year old daughter loves all the Fancy Nancy books! They are very cute stories and they use others words to help define/explain a "bigger" word that they use in the book. I think it is a great way to help expand a childs vocabulary. It's a win win.... we both enjoy reading them together. Read full review
