Fancy Nancy

A friend of mine recently told me about this series of books and how much her little girl enjoys them. She also told me about their local book store having a "Fancy Nancy Party" and how the little girls came all gussied up. But given the fact that Emma is not all that prissy (well, she has her moments) - I wasn't sure if she would like it or not. However, anything that sparkles catches her eye big time and she much prefers the sparkly hand-me-downs from my sister than anything plain that I might pick out for her.

So, we headed off to the book store last night because I wanted to pick up the latest edition of National Geographic because of it being centered around China this month. We looked for & found the "Fancy Nancy" books ... oh my, Emma is HOOKED. Thanks Denise! The icing on the cake is that even the paper cover on the book has sparkles and glitter on it. Emma is in sparkly heaven.

After reading it at bedtime last night Emma now wants a crown and some high heel shoes. Again, thanks Denise! I have a feeling we're going to be heading back to Barnes & Noble to buy a few more from that series. While I'm out, maybe I should try to find a sparkly t-ball glove and bat? hmmm ...
