OH MY GOODNESS I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. I owned this book when I was about 4 or 5 years old, and it came with a 45 vinyl record. I used to play the record on my plastic Fisher Price record player and follow along with the book. One day I accidentally sat on the record and broke it. I cried. I was sad, but it didn't stop me from reading the book. I love Bread and Jam for Frances. Reading that book made me hungry as a child and it makes me hungry as an adult--Celery and cream chese, tomatoes on rye, black olives, hard boiled eggs with a dash of salt, spaghetti and meatballs, milk with jam and bread. I don't know what came first, loving the book then the food or loving the food and then the book. This book still makes me smile and I'm sure every child will relate to Frances' dilemma.
