About this deal

The only thing that I for sure remember is that this is where I learned that 'Frances' can be a girl's name. I loved reading this again - there's so many warm and fuzzy memories caught up in the examination of a book you loved as a child, seen through the eyes of the adult. Frances decides she wants to eat only bread and jam at every meal until--to her surprise--her parents grant her wish. My heart aches when she turns down the breaded veal cutlets, though, because they were my favorite food growing up and I just can’t make them like my mom did. In fact, Frances is so in love with bread and jam that she exchanges her school lunch of chicken salad sandwich for bread and jam.

Bread and Jam” may be my favorite book in the Frances series, perhaps because I have prepared so many school lunches. The illustrations are wonderful, with Frances eating her toast and jam and staring with no small level of concern at her soft-boiled egg. The next day, she unpacks her lunch, which includes a wide variety of foods, and enjoys it all without complaint. The most recent book in Cohen's tales of a first-grade class finds the children preparing for Thanksgiving vacation. As dad eats spaghetti, there’s a pepper mill on one side of his plate, a hunk of cheese and a grater on the other.Betsy Bird is currently the Collection Development Manager of the Evanston Public Library system and a former Materials Specialist for New York Public Library. Her very wise parents decide to give Frances bread and jam for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner, until poor Frances cries at the dinner table and asks if she could please have some spaghetti with meatballs, like the rest of the family is eating. It might be compared with Rhea's Obsession, Siouxsie, Cindergarden, The Machine in the Garden, The Birthday Massacre, and Dead Can Dance. When Frances's mom starts not offering her anything else and starts only giving her bread and jam, Frances starts to become sad and realizes that she is getting tired of bread and jam and wants to try something new.

Mother and Father are patient, wise and kind and the language of the story is beautifully crafted with gentle touches of humour. Dean Carlson for AllMusic praised the album for taking the "darkwave pretensions of Switchblade Symphony's previous material and pushed it through an even more stylized electronic filter. And I love the songs Frances sings to solidify her position on Jam sandwhiches "Jam for snack and jam for meals, I know how a jam jar jeels--FULL.

she is a very picky eater and refuses to eat anything else but bread and jam no matter what her mom offers her. Hoban describes Frances's classmate, Albert, eating his delicious, balanced, varied and interesting lunch bite by bite, as Frances wistfully looks on over her bread and jam. Maybe in the future we can do follow-ups with experts, and I could tap you to talk with us more about that.
