Franklin’s Baby Sister

children's book / cover image / Franklin's Baby Sister

Arthur's baby sister arrives, as does spring.

Brief Review

Franklin awaits the birth of his baby sister, and then she arrives. Her arrival is paralleled with the arrival of spring, but there is no conflict, i.e. no plot. All we have is a Naturalist progression of events. The Li'l Critter story The New Baby by Mercer Mayer is much better.
