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 is a good book to read to your kids before they are old enough to read and to talk about with your kids.
I think this book is great for helping a child to understand that there are rules they must live by and consequences for their actions.
If a kid does not imagine scary things that go bump in the night, then he or she is a very rare sort of human being I should think.
Makes bedtime a pleasure for any child. Sweet, comforting, lovely images.Published 10 days ago by alfafemme
I enjoy the Frances books. She's hilarious. Her imagination, her songs, her questions - clever and childlike and fun. I highly recommend!Published 16 days ago by empress8411

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 3 months ago by Brynnlux
