Frances decides she likes to eat only bread and jam at every meal, until to her surprise, her parents grant her wish

HARPERCOLL

Frances is a fussy eater. In fact, the only thing she likes is bread and jam. She won't touch her squishy soft-boiled egg. She trades away her chicken-salad sandwich at lunch. She turns up her nose at boring veal cutlets. Unless Mother can come up with a plan, Frances just might go on eating bread and jam forever!

The Frances books were my favorite picture books as a child. I loved that she ate bread and jam at every meal and made up songs about string beans and cutlets. The illustrations personify Frances perfectly. Years later these books still delight young readers.

One of my all-time favorite picture books, in spite of some questionable food choices (eggs, breaded veal cutlets, lobster salad... blech). I love Frances' "Jam On Toast" song, her sweet parents, the writing... and, of course, the gentle lesson about trying new things.

Frances will only eat bread and jam, so her mom pulls a Mrs. Pigglewiggle and uses some reverse psychology to solve the problem.

i love frances books and the art is just so amazing and adorable
