Most Loved Childhood Books – Bedtime for Frances

18 Jun

Growing up, I was fortunate to be surrounded by books. I can still remember the incredible feeling of losing myself in a book, traveling to a new place, another time, and inviting wonderful characters into my head.

Bedtime for Frances by Russell Hoban was published by Harper Collins in 1960. Frances the badger has trouble falling asleep. What kid can’t relate to that? Loved this book, and bought it for my daughters. The illustrations by Garth Williams are delightful. My paperback copy is in rough shape. A signed, hardcover copy of this book is currently available on eBay for $250. I’m seriously considering it. Don’t try to talk me out of it.
