If you hate to laugh.....this book is NOT for you!!!

Here's a small (reminder) taste of Frank......


Lesson nine
We were working in literacy centers today when I heard Frank’s thundering voice from across the room. It’s a daily occurrence. He was trying to redirect one of the children in his group to a task that wasn’t really PART of the center. A case of the confused leading the even more confused.
I quietly left my own group to walk over and try to right a sinking ship.
“Frank, please remember that Frank worries about Frank, and Suzy worries about Suzy. I, on the other hand, worry about everyone.”
Crap.”
“What did you say?” I asked, knowing immediately I shouldn’t have asked.
“I thaid crap. Cause I thpilled thome things!”
“Frank. You do NOT say crap in school or to the teacher. You never ‘crap’ the teacher. Do you understand that?” I said convincingly. Or so I thought.
Shrugging his shoulders, he nodded. I walked away and heard him knock over the box containing the one thousand Mr. Potato Head pieces and turned to see them scatter across the floor.
“CRAP!” he shouted, and then looked at me.
I looked and then quickly turned away. Sometimes, just sometimes, you have to ignore the crap.

Lesson learned: Crap is not on our “must spell” list.



If you HATE to laugh, do NOT buy "The Book of Frank" here.

Frank…the missing pages…..AND THE BOOK…..


"Mrs. Smith, have you ever seen the Austin Powers?"

"Yes, Frank, I have."

"My favorite character if Fat Bastard!"

"Frank! You shouldn't say that word at school." 

"You mean FAT?"

 "No, the other one.”  Then I whispered, “Bastard."

Wide Eyed Frank, "I didn't even know that was a bad word! Huh. My dad calls my dog that all the time."

"Well, how about you just don't say it in school anymore, okay? Okay. "




As many of you know, I placed my fear in a closet and locked the door.  As I prepared for my double knee replacement surgery I decided there was one TINY thing I needed to do before I went under the knife.

I hit Publish.

And now, if you love to laugh, if you want to follow Frank, if you love children, if you WORK with children, if you enjoy reading stories on this particular blog…then you might love this labor of love.






But stay tuned….. for the Book of Stella…..
