When Franklin sets off to Bear's house for a birthday party, it's far from a straightforward journey. Like most preschoolers, Franklin is a dawdler, slow even for a turtle. The trip becomes an opportunity to play leapfrog with Rabbit, slip and slide in the mud with Otter, and maybe even play hide-and-seek with Fox. But just in time, Franklin remembers that he mustn't be late for Bear's special day.
Franklin is every young child's friend. He faces problems that are familiar to three to eight year olds -- such as fear of the dark, going to school and making new friends -- and solves them all by himself.
