I was too old for this book when it was first published but I’m not too old for it now. I recently saw it being discussed here at Goodreads and decided to read it.

Oh, how this evokes a feeling of childhood. I’m sure I’d have loved it when I was a kid.

I loved trusting and clever Frances, and I’m in agreement with her about the blue tea set.

This is a wonderful book for kids who are ready for longer picture books, and would be a perfect springboard for a discussion about what makes someone a good friend.
