Rated 4 out of 5 by from Franklin learns to listen to others One day while passing in front of Skunk’s house, Franklin spots a ‘moving’ sign. He is upset that his friend is moving and knows that he will miss her. He wants to inform all of his friends of the terrible news. Later, Franklin decides that he wants to throw a good-bye party for Skunk. But in the end, the surprise isn’t for Skunk, it’s for Franklin! I liked this story because Franklin learns to listen to others around him. People keep trying to tell him something, but he always cuts them off and starts talking. 4/5
