Bread and Jam for Frances

by Russell Hoban

Like many children, Frances is a fussy eater. Watching her family eat a range of delicious meals, Frances explains that she only wants to eat bread and jam, because she knows what she is getting and is always pleased. Her mother is warm and understanding (and clever!), and serves her bread and jam for breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner… causing Frances to realise that variety is indeed the spice of life, and to embrace new food adventures with her friends and family. This gently humourous book, is winner of the EB White Picture Book Hall of Fame award.
