Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bread and Jam for Francis I have read all of Hoban's Francis series to my children when they were young. This books thought them many life lessons in a none lecturing manner. We spend many hours reading about Francis and looking at the way she handled her life's problem. Being a young mother, at that time, I did not have the experience of preparing my children for school and making friends, but the books helped me tremendously. It gave the children a sense of being and how to belong and not staying angry at or person or a situation for long. My one daughter was so intrigued with Francis's singing that she began to sing whenever things did not go her way, this she kept up for a long time, from elementary school and almost right up to high school. Recently, I had the pleasure of reading some of the books to grade 6 and 7 students - their faces were captivated with the stories and you could see that they enjoyed the book as most had never heard of it before. Some books are still able to hold children's interest. This is one series I feel should not be forgotten, but brought into the reading circle.
