Great for my 4 year old

We love all the Frances books. They teach good lessons without being overbearing or preachy like some of the more contemporary attempts


Just love Frances, I remember reading these when I was a child and now sharing them with my child.


I love the Frances series! The stories are heartwarming and endearing and so are the illustrations!
