Franklin's Valentines - Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark
Released February 2012
Open Road Media
Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth
I admit, I've always had a soft spot for Franklin Turtle. Franklin's Valentines is a reissue, but it's a classic Franklin story that parents and children love. With this new Kindle version, parents can add it to their Kindle, computer or Smartphone with ease.
Franklin Turtle is all excited. Today's Valentine's Day. Double-checking that he didn't miss any of his friends, he rushes to his school bus. Later that day, the Valentine's Party starts. Only Franklin's valentines cards are no where to be found. What is Franklin going to do?
While most children will just love the students' eagerness for the party and sweet treats, there's a lesson taught within the story about the meaning of true friendship. Illustrations capture Franklin and his friends perfectly and sets the mood for your own Valentine's Day festivities.
For beginning readers, the standard opening to all Franklin books is included. Within no time, most children will be reading those first few lines with their parents.
