    1. One of the most perfectly written picture books - perhaps one of the most perfectly written books ever. Every single word is meticulously chosen, carefully placed on the page, like an artist painting a masterpiece. Wipe away the familiar story for a moment, the (just right) illustrations of badgers (?), and the now familiar rite of childhood trope of picky eaters, and rather think about this book as a long, free verse poem. It's a rich, lush, descriptive book that aches to be read aloud, not jus [...]


    2. Even though I don't actually like most of the foods that comprise Frances' particular diet (barring bread and jam, of course), the book always made me really hungry anyway. Adventures in food are such a huge part of growing up, and no book I can presently recall understands, or represents with such joy, the endlessly aggravating, impossible to predict, and hilariously beautiful relationship that kids have with their lunch.


    3. This is perhaps my favorite Frances so far. Frances does not like eggs and makes up a little song:I do not like the way you slide,I do not like your soft inside,I do not like you lots of waysAnd I could do for many days Without eggs. I can relate, Frances, I can relate. The illustrations are wonderful, with Frances eating her toast and jam and staring with no small level of concern at her soft-boiled egg. Frances is a picky eater and pretty soon she is turning down her string beans and all sorts [...]


    4. A sweet children’s book with an underlying lesson - have too much of something and eventually you’ll get sick of it


    5. I loved this book growing up. The moral of this story is "Be careful what you wish for." Frances only wanted to eat bread and jam every day. At first it was nice, but she got sick of it after a while. Seeing all the different things her family got to eat, and she only got bread and jam. And that spaghetti sure did look good.


    6. I was not fair to my daughter last night. I persisted in reading Bread and Jam for Frances, by Russell Hoban, to her even after she lost interest and started standing up and running around on the bed. I couldn't put it down. This is a favorite from my childhood that I am happy to revisit and will revisit again when my daughter is a little older.Frances is a girl (well, a badger) after my own heart. She'd rather eat bread and jam than eggs. As my friends know, I abhor egg dishes, but will happily [...]


    7. Frances Loves PBJ's and in the mothers infinate wisdom she blesses Frances with PBJ's at every turn. As Frances sings her feelings from enthusiasm to forced conviction she slowely comes to the realization that variety is not a bad thing and ventures to ask for the spaghetti that others are eating. I love the rationales Frances provides for not eating certain food "but sunny side up eggs lie on teh plate and look up at you in a funny way and sunny-side-down eggs lie on their stomachs and wait and [...]


    8. Bread and Jam For Frances personifies a young female badger as a fussy eater who loves bread and jam. The illustrations in this book are very soft employing pastel colors, soft edges and shading. The story itself is extremely realistic, as many children have refused to try new foods at one point in time. This book can help teach children the importance of variety and trying new things as even their most beloved treat can become stale and boring. While I thing the moral of the story is a good one [...]


    9. Probably due to length and vocabulary difficulty, this is somewhere around a level 4 reading book. Perhaps better read out loud by a parent. Story-wise, my children all loved it. Especially my 5 yr old. A story he could completely relate to about a child only wanting to eat their favorite things, it was a plot I could get into as well. Be prepared your child might go the way of the parent in the book and try to get you to feed them their favorite food for every meal until he gets sick of it. Not [...]



    10. Frances is a little girl badger who only wants to eat Jam and bread until her mother very lovingly teaches her a lesson that variety can be a good thing.


    11. The next day when the bell rang for lunch, Albert said, "What do you have today?" "Well," said Frances, laying a paper doily on her desk and setting a tiny vase of violets in the middle of it, "let me see." She arranged her lunch on the doily. "I have a thermos bottle with cream of tomato soup," she said. "And a lobster-salad sandwich on thin slices of white bread. I have celery, carrot sticks, and black olives, and a little cardboard shaker of salt for the celery. And two plums and a tiny baske [...]


    12. This is the tale of a mother. A loving mother, who does her very best to prepare delicious, healthy meals for an intransigent child who does not care that her mom is just trying to prevent her developing anemia, scurvy, or some other obsolete, nutrient-deficiency-caused illness. That cute badger exterior conceals an iron will, and her mother quite sensibly caves. I salute you, Frances' mother, for your passive-aggressive solution to this problem. Inspired by you, I will be feeding my toddler onl [...]


    13. A fussy eater. I have one of those. Maybe two sometimes three. So, even though this was part of of 1st grader's literature curriculum it was helpful in dealing with my four year old's food issues especially eggs! How appropriate indeed! I may have to try the tactics employed here. ha!Some of the words were a bit more challenging for my 1st grader but she persevered and read what I asked her to read. It's longer so I don't expect her to read all of it but she is able to decode most words.


    14. 'I have a thermos bottle with cream of tomato soup,' she said. 'And a lobster-salad sandwich on thin slices of white bread. I have celery, carrot sticks, and black olives, and a little cardboard shaker of salt for the celery. And two plums and a tiny basket of cherries. And vanilla pudding with chocolate sprinkles and a spoon to eat it with.''That's a good lunch,' said Albert.I always wanted a little cardboard shaker of salt in my lunch. One of my very favorite books!


    15. I chose this book because EW magazine aka MY FAVORITE MAGAZINE has selected this book as 50 books children need to read and decided to read it! Overall it was rather dull and not surprising.This is about Frances who only wants to eat bread and jam. So her parents used pretty much reverse psychology to make her eat regular food. Even if I was little and reading this I would not have been captivated by this story.


    16. There isn't too much to say about this one. It's a cute story to read to kids who are very picky eaters. It helps them see that eating different things can actually be fun and delicious. I didn't really want to read this children's series before and this one book will satisfy my minimal curiosity for it. I now have a new recommendation for parents looking for a cute, fluffy story to read to their children.


    17. An instant favorite. How much bread and jam can one badger eat? Turns out not as much as she thinks. Frances thinks all she wants and needs is bread and jam but when she sees the variety of food around her, her preference for bread and jam decreases as she starts to see value in trying new things. Great story for kids as sometimes they tend to be picky eaters.


    18. This was one of my favorite books as a child and then my children enjoyed reading as well. Hoban created a delightful children's story that was both entertaining and with a moral. I'm not sure I have ever used the word "delightful" before in a review but here it applies, yes this was delightful and a good story for children and a fine book for adults to read to children.


    19. I remember enjoying this book as a kid, so I thought I'd revisit it as a soon-to-be mom. While I like the message and Frances is extremely likable, the book is so text-heavy that I imagine most kids would lose interest about halfway through.


    20. About picky eaters and really a model for parenting, this has been a favorite of mine for a long time - but not for those reasons! Such cute illustrations of little Frances the badger who is very fond of jam. I like the pace of it and it's gentle conclusion.


    21. Wait, this is a BOOK?!? I only know the title from Switchblade Symphony's penultimate album: enpedia/wiki/Bread_an





    22. looking through daughters books and just read this in 3 minutes. brought back memories of rereading this several times as a kid. great book!


    23. This was my favorite childhood book! As a child I always wanted to have what France had for lunch at the end of the book.



    24. My husband never learned the lesson of this book. He still eats way too much bread and jam! I, on the other hand, prefer way too much chocolate.
