I don't usually list in GoodReads the picture books we read (that would be simply overwhelming . . . although I do have a database in which I keep track of every book we read . . . crazy, I know). However, I'm making an exception because we have listened to this audio collection of the Frances books SO MANY times that it FEELS as though it's a 300-page book.

I think I may have enjoyed this collection more than my kids. The narrator did a wonderful job, and the stories are quite similar to events I've gone through with my kids. Was surprised it was a collection because it was so short, but enjoy listening to them several times!

Wow, came across this for my 5-year-old daughter, and just had to get it. Reminded me of my childhood. And it's still an incredible book. Very sweet and wonderful. Get it!

We listened to these on CD and it was excellent, love the narrator. These felt old fashioned in a good way. We especially enjoyed all of Frances' songs.
