Being that I'm a grandmother of 3 grandsons, well I wasn't familiar with Jane O'Connor's I Can Read series especially because I haven't a granddaughter yet and Nancy is definitely a very cute girl! I picked up a couple of her books, enjoyed reading about Nancy, and started doing some research on Fancy Nancy! Here's what I found:
Fancy Nancy is a series of stories about a little girl who dreams of being fancy.

 Jane O'Connor is the author of more than thirty books for children, including the New York Times bestselling Fancy Nancy series, illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser, and the Nina, Nina Ballerina stories, illustrated by Dyanne Disalvo-Ryan. Fancy Nancy was nominated for the Quill Award for Best Picture Book in 2007. The Emperor's Silent Army: Terra Cotta Warriors of Ancient China won Booklist's Best Nonfiction Book for Young Readers in 2000. Jane has two grown sons. She was born, bred and still lives in New York City with her husband and their canine companion, Arrow.
I like this children book series for little girls to read with a cute concept to teach what big words mean.

Sometimes I think it's a bit much and way over done... but that's my opinion. What's yours? the big plus is that the wee ones are beginning to read and that's a very good thing!
