Jam on biscuits, jam on toast, jam is the thing that I like most

Jam on biscuits, jam on toast,
Jam is the thing that I like most.
Jam is sticky, jam is sweet,
Jam is tasty, jam’s a treat–
Raspberry, strawberry, gooseberry, I’m very
FOND… OF… JAM!

From BREAD AND JAM FOR FRANCES by Russell Hoban

I’m home sick today, eating jam and toast and drinking tea and thinking how very, very much I love Frances.  I especially love that she’s a badger.  Don’t see enough badgers in kid lit these days!  Lots of bears and rabbits and pigeons but a dearth of badgers who jump rope.  Alas!

  1. That’s true. Not many badgers out there! Oh, but we read Bear’s Loose Tooth by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman tonight, and there’s a badger in it. Not the main character, though…and definitely not a rope jumper 🙂 Glad you are enjoying Frances today…and hope you feel better soon!
