A Bargain for Frances, Dec. Picture Book of the Month

Frances the badger sets out for a play-date with her friend Thelma, but doesn't listen to Mother's advice to "be careful." Thelma convinces Frances to buy her plastic tea set, then goes to the store to buy the pretty, blue china tea set herself, the very same one that Frances dearly desires. Frances quickly realizes her friend tricked her and devises a plan to set things right and also re-establish their friendship on a more equal footing. A Bargain for Frances by Russell Hoban is a delightful "I Can Read" book for beginning readers with many more titles in the series to enjoy.
