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. Surprisingly, though, I find they are so well written and so delightful that I rarely get bored and I enjoy them almost as much as the kids do. If you can find this particular audio version, read by Glynis Johns (the mother from Mary Poppins), you will not be disappointed. It is one of the best readings I have ever heard of any book on audio tape.
