Something Even More Valuable...

Nancy Clancy Seeks a Fortune, as other Nancy Clancy books, never failed to disappoint. Not only was is fun and clever like all her other books, but the lesson in this one was a wonderful, clear one

This book begins with Nancy asking her parents if they are wealthy. This is something that I frequently see younger kids asking, simply because as they grow they are learning about money and the meaning of it all. As she expects, her parents tell her that they are not rich, but they are not poor either. Even though they tell her that they have everything they truly need, and are lucky because of this- Nancy feels that this makes her average.

It’s understandable as to why Nancy feels a bit disappointed with being “average”, or somewhere in the middle of poor and rich, because of her loud personality. Nothing about Nancy is average and she wouldn’t have it any other way! However, it was really nice to see how her mind changed throughout this book.

I think this book teaches a very important lesson about how a person’s money or lack of it, doesn’t define them as a person. The most valuable things are the things that money can’t afford. It’s an old saying, but all children eventually learn this and I liked that this book really emphasized this point!

Final thoughts?

A book with a great message, and an entertaining read overall. It’s impossible to be bored while reading about Nancy and her funny remarks! A soon-to-be favorite for all!

“Maybe the best things in life were free.”
