Great introduction to bullying and how to stand up for yourself. Nancy loves using fancy words but find it necessary to use plain words to speak up for herself. She gains a new friend and learns it is okay not to win as long as you try and give it your best shot! ( )

In this Fancy Nancy book Nancy overcomes an obstacle when she is chosen for the relay team for field day. Nancy can't run very well and encounters a mean classmate. In the end, Nancy stands up for herself and makes a new friend. This book is great because it shows children that everyone can't do everything well. It also shows that being mean to other people isn't a nice thing to do; that kindness gets you much farther. Nancy shows readers that even if you don't think you are great at something you should try your hardest and that's all that matters. At one point in the book she says "I will run as fast as I can, but we we lose don't say mean stuff." This is a great example for readers.
Another great thing is that the illustrations are colorful and detailed while the words are big and clear for the reader to see. ( )

Genre: realistic fiction
Summary: Nancy is not the best runner, but she gets picked to be on a team of runners. One of the girls is not very nice to her because she does not think Nancy is good enough, but in the end they work it out and become friends.

Critique: i think this is a fun book about friendship and working out our differences. I would have these around for the kids to read on their own time.

Age: first grade or second.
