Review:

Franklin is wholly endearing. He's afraid of the dark, he commits to things he shouldn't, he's jealous of his friends, he makes assumptions about people. In other words, he completely embodies what kids are like and about. This video presents two episodes from the television series, which began on CBS and has been a staple of Nick Jr. In "Be My Valentine," Franklin and Snail take great care to make valentines for the entire class. Franklin becomes distressed when his valentines are lost--he worries that those who gave him valentines will want them back since he no longer has any to give. But his classmates show him what friendship is really about. "Franklin's New Friend" Moose is a little intimidating--he's so big! When he and his classmates make assumptions about him, and Franklin is paired up with Moose at school, he learns that looks can be deceiving. With its cute, captivating characters and its sweet, easy-to-relate-to stories, this Franklin video is a winner. The animation perfectly captures Paulette Bourgeois's stories and Brenda Clark's illustrations--and series may just encourage its young viewers to begin to pick up one of Bourgeois's 40 books. (Ages 2 to 7) --N.F. Mendoza
