Bedtime for Frances (Trophy Picture Books) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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).

Synopsis:

The big hand of the clock is at 12.
The little hand is at 7.
It is seven o' clock.
It is bedtime for Frances.

It may be bedtime for Frances, but before Frances can sleep, she needs a glass of milk, a kiss from Father, one from Mother, her teddy bear, her doll, another kiss from Father, and another one from Mother. And then there are tigers and giants and ominous cracks in the ceiling to keep her up. Will Frances ever go to sleep?

Synopsis:

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.
