Franklin thought he was very lucky. He thought he had the best pet goldfish. He thought he had the best friends and the best stuffed dog. But, most of all, Franklin though the had the best mother in the whole wide world.
Franklin's mother baked fly pie, just for him.
Franklin's mother played catch, even when she was busy.
And Franklin's mother always read him two stories before bed, even when she was tired.
So when Granny told Franklin that his mother's birthday was the very next day, he decided to give her the best present ever.
Franklin wanted to show his mother how much he loved her.
Every year, Franklin made a birthday present for his mother.
She had loved her macaroni necklace.
She had hung Franklin's self-portrait on the wall.
She had even worn her birthday hat shopping.
