One of my all-time favorite picture books, in spite of some questionable food choices (eggs, breaded veal cutlets, lobster salad... blech). I love Frances' "Jam On Toast" song, her sweet parents, the writing... and, of course, the gentle lesson about trying new things.

Frances will only eat bread and jam, so her mom pulls a Mrs. Pigglewiggle and uses some reverse psychology to solve the problem.
