A delightful storybook in the series that inspired the Franklin and Friends TV show!

In this Franklin Classic Storybook, our hero is a very lucky turtle. He has the best friends, the best little sister, the best goldfish, and, of course, the best mother. But when he discovers that his mother’s birthday is coming up, he can’t find the best present. After giving it some serious thought, Franklin decides to do everything for his mom. On the morning of her birthday he takes her breakfast in bed, makes a brooch, draws a picture, and cuts fresh flowers from the garden! And then Franklin gives his mom a great big hug and says, “I love you”—which is, of course, the best gift of all.

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,
