Children's book read aloud. 'FANCY NANCY (Bonjour Butterfly)'
My daughter has been exposed to her fair share of Disney princesses and classic fairy tales, but when I choose new books for us to read, I try to avoid stories that push stereotypical ideas about what it means to be a girl. So you can imagine the apprehension I felt when my daughter developed a fascination with a character called Fancy Nancy. I was fully prepared to open the first book and find another mundane story about a little girl whose biggest passions are tutus and jewelry. Fancy Nancy talks in her very own fancy language that mixes in French words, multi-syllable words, and complex phrases. Nancy is supposed to be 6 years old, but she embodies the imagination, creativity, and adorable recklessness of every child in the toddler through preschool age range. Things rarely go according to plan for Nancy.
