Bedtime for Frances

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Bedtime for Frances is by Russell Hoban. Garth Williams illustrates the furry little badger and parents. The original drawings were in black and white, but the modern edition's illustrations are in color. Picture book has 32 pages.

It is 7 pm and time for bed, however Frances decides to delay sleep. She requests more milk and kisses. The creative badger imagines spiders, tigers and bears will get her. Mama and Papa badger try to convince their little one to fall asleep.

The baby animal book is great bedtime reading. Russell Hoban writes in a soothing rhythm. Garth Williams' badger family is cute. Plus, children love books with baby animals. Kids are familar and relate to Frances' desire to postpone sleep.

Bedtime for Frances has been a bedtime favorite for over fifty years. Some parents and grandparents have issues as childrearing has changed over time. Papa badger alludes to a spanking if Frances doesn't settle and go to sleep. However, no spanking takes place in the bedtime story. Also, Papa smokes a pipe. If this concerns a parent or caregiver, stay away. Try other classic bedtime stories such as Goodnight Moon or Time for Bed.
