    Delightful Book

    Francesca is a delightful book for young girls. There's so much they can do, and Francesca explores some ideas. It also reminds children to enjoy their childhood, now. I like the characters, and the art is charming. Mrs. Pinkler, Francesca's neighbor offers wise advice. Very nice.
