Franklin Is Bossy

Classic Franklin Stories

by Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark
Franklin has lots of friends and one best friend named Bear. They play tag, hopscotch, and ball. But Franklin always wants to pick the game and make the rules. No one wants to play with him—he’s too bossy! In this Classic Franklin Storybook, Franklin learns he can’t always have his own way.

This fixed-layout ebook, which preserves the design and layout of the original print book, features read-along narration by the author as well as music and sound effects.
