Any parent will quickly identify with this phenomenon--how the last minutes of the day suddenly become the most action-packed. Garth Williams's 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) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
This is a little story meant for kids who are at least 3 or 4, I believe. Old enough to lay in bed on their own and go to sleep after a story or two. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Brynnlux
