|Bread and Jam for Francis, by Russell Hoban, illus. by Lillian Hoban
|Francis loves bread and jam. That is the only thing that
she will eat. She won't eat spaghetti, she won't eat breaded veal cutlets; she
only wants bread and jam. Read what her parents do, and see that eating lots of
different things is good for you (and fun besides)! I like this book because,
like Francis, I like all my food to "come out even."
