The Franklin the Helper collection of books are what we call "Lesson Books". This means that the stories are long enough to bring interest and excitement to the reader, yet they are short and get straight to the point (lesson) of the story. Moreover, the stories take the reader directly into the action of story, with a swift yet solid resolution that helps the reader learn a valuable lesson on how to persevere through difficult social situations. You'll find that our Lesson Books give practical advice to real-life situations, and the stories conclude in a realistic way. These factors set our books apart from most children's books.
