Category Description for Frances Books:

Possibly the most loveable badger in children's literature, Frances is somehow funny and opinionated yet naive as she experiences many of the same "bumps in the road" as many young children. You just can't help grinning as Frances runs "away" after the arrival of a baby sister, makes a trade with a crafty friend, and decides that bread and jam make the best meal of all. 32 pgs, pb unless otherwise noted. Please note that A Bargain for Frances is now only available in an "I Can Read" version which is slightly abridged and smaller-format.

Category Description for Frances Study Guide:

An enjoyable guide written by Valerie Bendt for studying six of the Frances books. Frances is a young badger facing some of the same problems or conflicts many youngsters face, including having a new baby in the house! The series was chosen largely because of the positive attitudes and character traits modeled by Frances. The books provide more than character studies, however, as they provide the base for strengthening a whole spectrum of language arts skills including listening, comprehension, oral narration, sequencing, phonetics, beginning reading, writing, and discussion. Activities and games are included for each story as well, including active ones that more lively children will appreciate. The guide uses the Frances books listed below. Please note the guide is now only available as a CD-ROM with printable PDF files.
