Something my Girls are Not... Yet...

I have three children.  One boy and two girls (twins).  Right now, til next month at least; they are all three years old.  Now, surprisingly, or maybe not, my girls are not girlie girls.  And I guess that would be my fault since I was more of a tom-boy growing up, I'm not into tiaras and lace.

So, when I saw this book at the library, I thought it would be a great into for them to get into girlie things...  and it was...  for all three of them!

Fancy Nancy by Jane O'Connor and Illustrated by Robin Glasser (Ages 4-8)

Story of a little girl who loves to be fancy.  She uses fancy words and explains what they are, for example, Posh is another word for Fancy.  Here family is not fancy, but she places an ad at Grand Central Refrigerator and her family wants to take classes.  As a treat, they go out, all while being fancy.  I loved the looks on the other patrons' faces as they walked in the door.  It is priceless.  You'll have to get the book for yourself.  It's a gem.

Oh, and the best part, since my kids loved her in this book, I'm excited to learn that she has other books too!

Happy Reading!
