Fran's Flower by Lisa Bruce, illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw

Lexile:    Not Rated
Pages:    32
Ages:     4-8
Fran and her little dog Fred find a flowerpot full of dirt with a small green bud sticking out of it.  Fran decides she will grow the flower.  She tells it, "Grow, flower!" but the flower doesn't grow.  She then decides the flower is hungry.  But what does a flower eat?  She gives it all of her favorite foods - pizza, cheeseburger, and ice cream - all with no luck.  So she decides maybe it would like one of Fred's juicy bones - Fred does not look very happy about it - but the flower does not want the bone either. What to do?

Come to the library and find out what Fran does with her flower.  I love this book for the fun, simple story and the bright, happy-looking illustrations.  Fran's Flower is a really fun book to read out loud with your child - I always make a big deal of what she is feeding the flower.  "Pizza! Ha-ha-ha!  She's feeding her flower pizza!  Do you think a flower will eat pizza???"  The kids just laugh and have a really good time.  I hope you enjoy Fran's Flower as much as I do.

Peace, Love, and Reading,
Miss Laurie
