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."
