Bedtime For Frances and A Bargain For Frances by Russel Hoban and Lillian Hoban are the two titles I have been sharing with my second grade groups. We have some good discussions about Frances and her friend, Thelma. We predict outcomes. We talk about what it means to be a friend.
There are a few more Frances books out there that I love. These have been around for many years but shouldn't be forgotten or overlooked.
