This is one of the 'original' Franklin the turtle book' starts out with the rhyme... Franklin can tie his shoes and count to twos' or something similar to this... "but Franklin can not..." and then the story starts. In this story I liked it because (as in some of the others) Franklin isn't bossy and mean or spoiled. He is given the lead role to play in the holiday play at school. He's super excited and learns his lessons well...however when they did a stage presentation before the opening night ...more

A perfect story for December!!

Franklin has been chosen to play the Prince in 'The Nutcracker' but is having trouble. First he can't remember his lines, but then he's afraid of having an audience. What is a little turtle to do?

Mr. Owl comes to the rescue with great ideas and compromises.

A great little book full of imaginative illustrations that will make you go squee and a story that is sure to please anyone.

Squee squee squee!!
The Brothers
Franklin is recruited to be the Nutcracker in the school's Christmas play. He works hard to get his lines right, but is paralyzed by stage fright when he tries to rehearse on the stage. Another student is chosen to replace him and in the process of helping the new student, Franklin loses his stage fright.

Typical Franklin illustrations.
