    Glad to find it in hardcover

    I searched everywhere for a hardcover version of this book. It's a wonderful selection for a young child who has a new baby in the house, and it always gets a lot of use. Paperback is just not practical for this book.

    A Sister for Frances

    I bought this for my granddaughter when she became a big sister. It is a delightful book and I recommend it for any child becoming an older sibling.

    A great book for a soon to be big sister

    I got this book when my sister was born fifteen years ago and it was so great I'm getting for my other sister who is going to have a new baby in her life. It's a great story to show young children that they are still going to be loved even with the new addition to the family.

    Great book for adding to your family!

    Frances is a bit jealous of her new baby sister, so she runs away (under the dining room table). There is a good lesson in this book for children about to become big brothers or sisters.
