Bread and Jam for Frances


I discovered this charming book while I was an undergraduate studying early childhood education and read it  to preschoolers to get them to settle before nap-time.   I can't recall the children's responses but I loved the story.   And twenty-five years later,  I still remember the message and some of the text:

Sometimes children will go on food jags.  Wise and understanding parents allow children to learn for themselves that there really can be too much "bread and jam."
