Bedtime for Frances (Trophy Picture Books)by Russell Hoban
Synopses & Reviews
Famed for her many adventures, Frances made her debut with this title over thirty years ago. In this first Frances book, the little badger adroitly delays her bedtime with requests for kisses and milk, and concerns over tigers and giants and things going bump in the night. Long a favorite for the gentle humor of its familiar going to bed ritual, Bedtime for Frances is at last available with the warmth of full color enriching Garth Williamss original nuanced and touching art. ‘Here is the coziest, most beguiling bedtime story in many a day.—Kirkus Reviews (pointer).
A hilarious story that shows kids that they can get themselves to sleep at bedtime!
Sam is never ready to go to sleep at bedtime. There are always more questions to ask Mama, more books to read . . . not to mention the monkeys! Sams rambunctious trio of toy monkeys would much rather jump on the bed and make up songs about ping pong than go to sleep.
Eventually Sam wants to go to sleep. But how will he ever get the monkeys to settle down?
This storys silly monkey mayhem also includes a calming bedtime routine that really works.
Frances has trouble going to sleep because of frightening sounds and objects that may be going to get her.
