Franklin is a very lucky turtle. He has the best friends, the best little sister, the best goldfish and, of course, the best mother. But when he discovers that his mother's birthday is coming up, he can't find the best present. After giving it some serious thought, Franklin decides to do everything for his mom. On the morning of her birthday he takes her breakfast in bed, makes a brooch, draws a picture and cuts fresh flowers from the garden! And then Franklin gives his mom a great big hug and says "I love you" -- which is, of course, the best gift of all.
