Frances: Bedtime For Frances DVD Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)


Based on the book by Russell Hoban, Frances: Bedtime For Frances was recently released on DVD. Frances comes to life on screen to entertain a whole new audience of children.

The award winning book Bedtime For Frances is a fun addition to your library. The hard-bound book has the DVD inside. What a great bonus. The book originally debuted in 1960 and received the "Notable Children's Book" award from The American Library Association.

Frances is a fun-loving preschooler. Her parents and baby sister help to complete their family. I love how the dynamic of their family is fairly typical of a family with a toddler and baby. The girls are great friends and play together often. But there are also times when Frances can't stand having to miss out on things because of her baby sister. I also love the episode when Frances just won't go to bed. I can relate with her exhausted parents, because we've had days like that too.

I have to say, this is probably my sons favorite DVD. It has been since we've received it. We have watched it so many times, he could probably quote it line by line for you. He loves it.

One of the neat parts of this DVD is the classical music that they've incorporated into it. Frances loves to sing and dance. I enjoy all the songs she sings to the tunes of classical pieces. They are quite catchy and fun.

Also included on this DVD is an interactive Read-Along of "Bedtime for Frances", a character gallery, and a bonus episode of Fifi and the Flowertots. It is targeted at children 2-5 years old. And it runs for about 47 minutes. I would recommend this DVD to any young children.

We LOVE Francis!!! We got into those books last summer and occasionally watch an episode on the free-on-demand channel, but there hasn't been one available for a while.

BTW: Was thinking of giving this link to my daycare provider in case she wanted to get in on these reviews/give-a-ways. BUT I do NOT want her to notice my name and click on my blog. Yeah--don't want THAT. So...sorry!
