Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Since Franklin's move to TV, even more early reader books have featured him and his friends. In this story, Franklin learns about a soapbox derby and, with his friend Bear, builds a car to enter the race. The car is lopsided and far from fancy. It also refuses to budge when the race starts. Then when Bear and Franklin give it a good push, it heads off on its own, careening along and bumping other cars until just the box crosses the finish line. The duo do not win the (the winner has to be in the car in order to claim the prize) but they sure had fun. A level 2 book in the "Kids Can Read" series. There is an opening note to teachers and parents explaining the three levels in the series.
