Paulette Bourgeois is the well-known and much-loved Canadian author who wrote all the books about Franklin the turtle. He's the
turtle that can count forward and backwards, zip zippers, button buttons, and say the alphabet without stopping. If you have children in school you probably know Franklin the turtle. Canadian author Paulette Bourgeois has created a character that faces the same challenges that our own children do, from fears of the dark, being too messy, making friends, learning to ride a bike, and going to school. If there is a childhood milestone there is probably a Franklin book. We have 62 Franklin books in our library. We know because we counted them today.What are you reading?
