I must confess, I really like this series on so many levels.

Nancy is a little girl who adores using her colossal vocabulary, much to the chagrin of her friends and family. Sometimes it gets her into a little trouble and sometimes she works out her troubles. These are not complicated stories but they do help students develop a larger vocabulary at a second grade reading level. They are similar to the more complex Geronimo Stilton series by addressing the need of children to develop larger vocabularies. Which is the main reason I like these books.

I also like these books because they allow us to be a little silly and pretentious a we read them!

Can you tell a bibliophile wrote these books? You betcha’! They are entertaining and educational!
