9780064434515: Bedtime for Frances (Trophy Picture Books)

Frances does not want to go to bed. She spins out her time downstairs by having a glass of milk, a piggyback and a kiss. In bed she can't sleep so she sings an alphabet song, a friendly tiger appears, and a giant, and a troublesome crack in the ceiling. Soon she finds she is tired.

Review:

It's bedtime for young Frances--an adorable and irrepressible little badger--and everyone is ready but her. At 7:00 p.m. Frances is wide awake and bursting with youthful excitement. She tries every delay tactic she can muster--from demanding extra hugs and kisses to volleying a series of urgent last-minute questions ("May I sleep with my teddy bear?" "May I have my door open?"). She's almost positive there are spiders, giants and tigers in her room.

Any parent will quickly identify with this phenomenon--how the last minutes of the day suddenly become the most action-packed. Garth Williams' illustrations complement Russell Hoban's sweet story perfectly, capturing the endless energy and overactive imagination of Frances, and the waning patience of her exhausted parents. Bedtime for Frances is the perfect goodnight story to tell your wide-eyed children. And never fear, like Frances, they too will eventually, contentedly, drift off to sleep. (Ages 4 to 8)

Review:

"The perfect story for all those who, like Badger, would prefer not to go off to bed" Junior
