Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Franklin the turtle has best friends, the best-stuffed dog, the best goldfish and the best mother. So, when he finds out that his mother's birthday is the next day, he tries to find the best present. Franklin asks Bear, Snail, Beaver and Goose for suggestions. They offer several ideas and Franklin does them all. On the morning of her birthday he brings her breakfast in bed, gives her a handmade brooch, draws her a special picture and cuts fresh flowers from the garden! And then Franklin gives his mom the best gift; he gives her a great big hug, kisses and says, "I love you." This is a sweet book for Franklin fans. The message is as clear as the bright, colorful drawings that accompany the text. 2002, Kids Can Press,
