Reviews for Birthday For Frances

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Spring
In this abridged and colorized easy-reader edition, Frances comes to terms with the fact that it's her little sister Gloria's birthday--and not hers. The abridged text and modified design don't stand up to the original picture book version, but Frances's moral dilemma--should she or shouldn't she eat the Chompo Bar she buys for Gloria?--will resonate with beginning readers.
