Overview


Francesca is a little girl literally ahead of her time. She's only a child but she ""thinks about being grown all day and all night"" and spends too much time inside fantasizing about what she wants to become. Francesca is impatient to become an astronaut, a movie or rock star, a teacher or a cheerleader. However, her parents worry that she doesn't understand that she needs experiences gained as you grow and tell her ""don't miss out on everything in the middle. There is something magical about being little."" Francesca has a wonderful imagination and is full of life but her parents want to make sure she not only has the chance to achieve her dreams but also to play and have fun with kids her own age.

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.
