Frankie’s Perfect Home by Beverly Stowe McClure is about a young armadillo in search of a new home. With three brothers and his mother all living in the same space, Frankie feels like he doesn’t have enough room. After being poked and prodded one evening by his sleeping brothers, Frankie sets off to find the perfect home. Perfection is difficult to find, however, and his journey will take him through some interesting landscapes and into the presence of fascinating and frightening creatures. Along the way, Frankie learns a valuable lesson about family, and he will be surprised to discover the location of his perfect home.
Beverly Stowe McClure’s Frankie’s Perfect Home teaches an important lesson about gaining independence without sacrificing familial relations. Young children will be delighted by the bright and colorful illustrations of adorable and amusing creatures, while older children will be able to relate to Frankie’s desire to break free from the confines of home. This book would be an excellent tool to use with children struggling with siblings or for children transitioning from childish behaviors into older behaviors. McClure’s book is an easy enough book for children to read on their own, but with a deep enough message that will help facilitate discussion between parents and their children. With the message of leaving the nest, I think this book could be a sentimental but fun gift for high school graduates as well. I highly recommend this entertaining picture book by Beverly Stowe McClure and I hope to read more of her books in the future.
