Frances books

Published in 1960

Longer story but still good.


I love all the Frances books - so heartwarming and endearing! I love both the illustrations and the stories. Highly recommend!

good for a bit older child

This is not a quick bedtime read, but it is a good one for slightly older children (2 or 3 and up) who have the attention span to sit still for a longer story. The topics may also frighten some children (Frances encounters what she thinks are scary objects in the dark). But I enjoy all of the Frances books. In this book in particular, I appreciate Frances' calm, sensible parents who are never ruffled by Frances' continuous attempts to stay up late.
