Kindergarten-Grade 1-Although he can count to 10 and say the whole alphabet without stopping, Franklin faces his greatest academic challenge yet: to draw a picture of his favorite thing in the entire neighborhood. Should it be the library? The ice-cream store? The fire station? The possibilities are endless for this young turtle, who relishes all aspects of life in his sunny and bustling neighborhood. His ingenious solution of drawing all of his neighbors will leave youngsters surprisingly pleased. Clark's charming cartoon illustrations will appeal to children just discovering the world around them. A fine read-aloud to introduce the varied elements of a community.
