J is for
and when I think of Jam I remember my dearest daughter's favorite childhood book, Bread and Jam for Frances , by Russell Hoban!
Amanda loved Frances and all of her books...
and now that her wee daughter, Birdie, is soon to become a big sister she is introducing Frances to her.... Now wee Birdie loves to have Bread and Jam read to her each morning over her own toast and jam.... I can imagine Miss Birdie day-dreaming about having a bread and jam party with Frances..
and they would share all their best loved secrets!
So, last week when Birdie found this fairy -like setting in our friend's yard she swept the chair clean from the fallen leaves, carefully climbed up on it, and very politely looked around and asked, "May we invite Frances for bread and jam, please?"
