Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Victoria Ryles
Frances is determined to eat only bread and jam for every meal. She likes it so much she makes up rhymes in honor of her favorite food. She also makes up rhymes about food she does not like. She sings about the egg her parents want her to try: "I do not like the way you slide, I do not like your soft inside�" However, "Jam on biscuits, jam on toast, jam is the thing I like most�" Her parents encourage her to try veal cutlets, chicken salad, and spaghetti and meatballs. At school, her friend Albert enthusiastically takes out a variety of foods from his lunchbox, but, thanks to her parents' wisdom, it is not long before Frances willingly asks for something to eat besides bread and jam. Being picky about food is a trait to which many children can relate, and new readers will enjoy seeing how Frances learns to appreciate new foods. The use of repetition and rhyming create a sense of predictability and fun, and the simple yet warm and expressive illustrations bring this story to life. This is part of the "I Can Read" series.
