  1. I wanted to let you know how much I like “Being Frank”! I just love how the delightful humor enhances the “message” of caring about other people’s feelings. I’m not sure I’ve ever read a more grace-filled children’s book about helping a child change their actions. Also, I was so surprised to find clever puns the 2nd and 3rd times I read it. 🙂 I think I found it through an online group member’s recommendation, and I’m glad I did. Even our older kids like it and think it’s funny!


    1. Christa… thank you so much the sweet words of encouragement! I am so glad that your older kids like it, too! YAYAY! I have to admit, the puns were fun to write. 🙂

      Thank you, again, for your comments. And thank your critique group for suggesting it. Hugs to you all!
