Children's Literature - Wendy Pollock-Gilson
What is Franklin to do? He knows his alphabet and how to count to ten, but choosing his favorite place in the neighborhood to illustrate for homework one night is a hard choice. In the newest addition to the popular Franklin series, Franklin considers happy times with his animal friends at the library, fire station, pond and berry patch. Finally, he realizes that it is the people not the places in the neighborhood which really matter. Preschoolers and early elementary school age children will check this upbeat story out as soon as it reaches your library or classroom shelves. It would provide a good introduction to discussing people and their roles in your community.
Library Journal
K-Gr 1-Although he can count to 10 and say the whole alphabet without stopping, Franklin faces his greatest academic challenge yet: to draw a picture of his favorite thing in the entire neighborhood. Should it be the library? The ice-cream store? The fire station? The possibilities are endless for this young turtle, who relishes all aspects of life in his sunny and bustling neighborhood. His ingenious solution of drawing all of his neighbors will leave youngsters surprisingly pleased. Clark's charming cartoon illustrations will appeal to children just discovering the world around them. A fine read-aloud to introduce the varied elements of a community.-Selene S.
