She loved it! She is a dancer, so the theme really fit. The sparkles on the outside of the book are just the icing on the cake. This is a great story and teaches children a great lesson - not to mention it expands their vocabularies!

She's back and super fancy -- and the story will melt your heart! Feb. 7 2012
By Nancy Jo - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you are a fan of any of the books, you will love to add this to your collection! I own all the hardcover books (how can I not? my name is Nancy!) and this one just arrived this morning. The colors, illustrations and dust jacket are beautiful, as usual. I was a little curious about the title, but it ends up being one of (if not my most) favorite of the whole series. Nancy is her usual self and obsessed with her current life situation -- dance class -- and is thrilled that they will be performing a ballet. She is ready to be the star, but her and her friend Bree end up being supporting roles (a tree and an oyster). They are sad, but decide to be happy about it and enjoy fancy-fying their roles. It ends up Bree gets to be a Mermaid and I am just in love with how Nancy decides to deal with the situation. It is a great story of friendship and love that I want to read to my daughter over and over! You'll love it, I 100% promise!

So cute, fun & educational too! April 14 2012
By cb_colo - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My daughter received this book as a gift for her 3rd birthday and she LOVES it! When I saw how many pages & words were in the book, I was concerned that my just-turned-3-year-old would not have the attention span to sit through it, but she did and hung on to every word!

The book teaches new vocabulary and also has a great life lesson weaved in. This is one of our favorite books now and I plan to buy more Fancy Nancy books as a result.

A must read for Fancy Nancy fans! Feb. 9 2012
By Melissa Sack - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Fancy Nancy and her friends are back. In this installment Nancy and her dance class are preforming a mermaid ballet. Nancy is not proud of the role that she is given. Her friends and family teach her that there are no small parts! She learns the meaning of teamwork!

The cover caught my girls, ages 5 and 7, eyes right away! It's full of sparkly glitter ! If you are a Fancy Nancy fan this book is a must read!

Another Great Fancy Nancy Story Feb. 19 2012
By Timothy Haugh - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
With a young daughter named Nancy, we obviously have a lot of Fancy Nancy titles on the shelf. All of them are good, but some of them are better than others. This newest one is one of the better ones.

This time around, I particularly like the lesson it teaches. It's an obvious one, but it fits well in the story that is told. Here, Nancy becomes jealous when her best friend, Bree, gets a part in the ballet recital that Nancy really wants. Along the way, we get to see Nancy's love of ballet and everything fancy (of course).

In the end, as expected, everything works out well. Nancy and Bree are friends forever and there is a celebratory dinner at the King's Crown. It's much of what's best in a Fancy Nancy story.

Vocabulary with a pinch (or many!!) of fun! March 22 2012
By Margaret C. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Oh how I love Fancy Nancy! Is it silly that I am not quite certain if it my daughter or myself that is more giddy when this book comes off the shelf? Every Fancy Nancy we've read so far has been spectacular! (That's a fancy word for great.) Glittery embossed covers to fanciful illustrations. Drama like only a little girl can master and oh woe is me I love it to pieces! Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet is more that just a picture book for your 4-7 year old. It is a vocabulary lesson disguised and covered in pink, purple and teal (or sapphire and turquoise - fancy words for blue). So many things can be learned and this one is about more than just words.

In the Mermaid Ballet, Nancy and Bree learn about being a team in ballet and how every part counts - even the tree and oyster. It is not only the main mermaid that gets to swim, but even all the others get to sway and become carried away. Each page is fun and full of things to discuss. The images are so cute and make me grin. Every time we read through AppleBlossom finds another thing of amusement. I'm so delighted. Just for our shelf to read for fun, but also for the sly homeschooling vocabulary on the side. So very much recommended.
