      Description
      Franklin the Turtle and Bear are heading to their cool-io tree fort when Harriet and Beatrice, their younger sisters, try to tag along. Though Franklin and Bear tell the girls they can't come, their mothers have a different idea. “But we were going to put our stuff in the tree fort,” Franklin says. “There will still be time for that,” says Mrs. Turtle. “Right now, you need to find something to do with your sisters --- something safe. That means on the ground, Franklin.” Franklin and Bear are so disappointed. All of their friends are in the tree fort having a great time. It's not fair! Will they be able to come up with a way to have fun and watch their sisters at the same time? Younger siblings often pose a problem for children when they want to be left alone to do “big kid” stuff. In this situation, Franklin and Bear are able to find a way to engage in play that everyone enjoys and that even ends up bringing the siblings closer. As with many of the titles in this series based on the 3D-animated television show Franklin and Friends, it's a win-win solution to a typical problem faced by children in their everyday lives. This book would make an excellent choice for a character education lesson about adaptability, initiative or responsibility. The amazing ground fort the children create out of cardboard boxes could inspire some terrific structure-building classroom projects as well.

      Description
      Franklin the turtle is excited to be spending two whole nights at his best friend Bear's house! They have so much fun together playing outdoors and making cool snow dragons. But even though Franklin is having lots of fun with Bear, some things at Bear's house make him a little bit uncomfortable. “I'm just not used to things around here,” Franklin tells his friend. “And I miss my family. I wish they could be here with me.” Luckily for Franklin, Bear and his parents understand what he's going through. And with a lot of kindness and some clever ideas, they manage to help Franklin deal with his sadness and start to feel at home. As with all the Franklin books, this one perfectly captures a difficult experience that is commonly faced by young children, in this case that of spending time away from home. Kindergarten and preschool children will recognize and relate to the conflicting emotions Franklin has. They, too, are likely enjoying some newfound independence away from their families, while still yearning for the comfort and familiarity of home after time away. Well-known from the very popular 3D-animated television series Franklin and Friends, the lovable character Franklin is a welcome guest in any classroom and a big hit at storytime. This book offers an excellent opportunity for a class discussion on the subjects of independence or fear. It would also work well for character education lessons about compassion, empathy and kindness.

      Description
      It's nearly Christmas, but the adults in Woodland are too busy buying presents, putting up their trees and decorating to have any time for holiday fun. This gives Franklin the turtle an idea. “What if we go caroling?” he says to his friends. “I bet that would get everyone into the Christmas spirit!” At first, they all agree it's a great plan. But when caroling time comes, Franklin and Snail are the only two who show up in the town square. Though he's disappointed, Franklin bravely begins singing all by himself, with Snail accompanying him on the harmonica. Slowly, people start to gather around. Soon they begin caroling, too. And before long, thanks to Franklin, everyone in town has found the holiday spirit! Based on the popular Franklin and Friends 3D-animated television program, this book highlights what a wonderful role model the beloved turtle Franklin can be. Here he shows young children that, even though they're small, they can still make a difference in their own communities. It also teaches them how, when things don't go according to plan, if you trust in yourself and follow your heart, you're sure to end up doing the right thing. This title would be a perfect choice for a read-aloud during the holiday season, and could launch a discussion of what “holiday spirit” means and how children can help foster it. It would also work beautifully for a character education lesson on caring, courage or initiative.

      Description
      Franklin the Turtle and Beaver both want to be the summer caretaker for Gordon, their club's pet gecko. So, to determine who would make the best “gecko-sitter,” their friends decide to hold a competition of some special “Gecko Games” to test their skills and knowledge. They both try their hardest, and it's a close challenge, but in the end Franklin wins two out of three games. Franklin is so excited he'll be taking Gordon home! That is, until he notices Beaver's reaction. Beaver looks so sad and disappointed, and Franklin doesn't “feel like a winner at all.” Is there any way Franklin and Beaver can both come out ahead? Part of the picture book series based on the 3D-animated television show Franklin and Friends, this book offers children a model for dealing with an uncomfortable situation. Here, after thinking about the fact that he already has a pet at home while Beaver doesn't, Franklin realizes the job is more important to Beaver than to him, so he gives it to Beaver. This is a wonderful reminder of something many children instinctively know --- giving really can be better than receiving. It works beautifully for a character education lesson on compassion, caring or kindness. The idea of choosing who would be the most qualified gecko-sitter for the job instead of merely picking a favorite friend also offers a terrific lesson on fairness.

      Description
      Franklin the Turtle and his sister, Harriet, are thrilled when Aunt T shows up to babysit with a telescope. They can't wait to do some stargazing! Unfortunately, the sky is too cloudy, and Franklin is disappointed to hear they won't be able to use the telescope after all. Luckily, Aunt T has a great idea for a new plan. Sure, they aren't able to look at the real night sky, but with some ingenuity and plenty of imagination, they can create their own version of outer space --- inside! Based on the 3D-animated TV series Franklin and Friends, this tie-in picture book highlights a very common experience for young children --- being disappointed when highly anticipated plans don't work out. Here, children are reminded that it's always possible to find another alternative, and a lot of fun, if you just know where to look and keep an open mind. This entertaining, brightly colored book with its familiar characters would be a big success as a read-aloud in a preschool or kindergarten classroom. It offers an excellent starting point for a lesson about being creative in any number of ways --- painting and drawing, making up new games to play or even copying the idea of crafting a unique solar system as it's done in the book. As with all Franklin books, this one also ties in beautifully with character education lessons, this time on adaptability, teamwork, optimism or patience.

      Description
      Franklin the turtle and all of his friends are playing spaceship in their tree fort. Well, almost all of his friends. Where's Snail? He's down on the ground, playing his harmonica. “Our spaceship is about to take off. Climb aboard!” Franklin tells Snail. But Snail doesn't want to play spaceship, he wants to play his harmonica. “You can do that later,” Franklin answers him, and so Snail agrees to join his friends. But even after blasting off into space, dodging meteors and landing on Planet Glorp, Snail isn't having any fun in the spaceship. He would still rather play his harmonica. Can Franklin and Snail find a way to play together so that everyone has fun? Often, young children are confronted with disagreements over choosing a game to play, which can lead to a child being left out of playtime. Here, as in all the Franklin books, the characters find a solution, and all the friends are able to contribute to the game, making them each feel like a part of the group. This title would stir lively discussions among youngsters as a tie-in to character education lessons on adaptability, fairness or inclusiveness. Based on the beloved 3D-animated television series Franklin and Friends, it would be a popular read-aloud choice for preschool or kindergarten storytime
