If you're a parent trying to introduce your kids to concepts of frugality and protecting the planet without being bossy about it, then this is the book for you! If you haven't met Fancy Nancy yet, you're in for a treat. Jane O'Connor has created the most lovable and realistic little girl for these picture books and early readers (each of which has a moral message which is never didactic). In this book, 'Every Day is Earth Day', Nancy is introduced to the concept of caring for the earth by her teacher. She quickly teaches the rules about being green to her parents (bringing good habits home as many children do) - "Dad...the green rule is: Less than a mile? Then bike in style" Nancy says. It's utterly fabulous (which is a fancy word for great).
