Frances knows what she likes - jam spread on bread. In fact, this is all Frances wants to eat, so her wise mother gives her just that for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. Finally, one evening when everone else gets spaghetti and meatballs, Frances starts to cry and declares that she would like spaghetti and meatballs too! In the end, Frances enjoys a wonderful lunch at school, filled with a variety of foods-but no bread and jam!
