A Birthday for Frances (I Can Read - Level 2) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gloria's birthday is tomorrow, and everyone is looking forward to the celebration—except Frances. Frances can't help but think that it always seems to be someone else's birthday. To make matters worse, Gloria's birthday present costs Frances a whole two allowances! Is there anything that can turn this disastrous day around?

Full of warmth and humor, this new edition of Russell and Lillian Hoban's beloved classic is perfect for beginning readers.
