"A DAY DOWNTOWN WITH DADDY is the story of a brother and sister as they experience the wonders of a big city in the company of their father. Such a day is a very happy experience and remembered and talked about by most young children. From such a trip the child's understing of the town in which he live is increased. At the same time it is lots of fun. I hope this story will help families in planning trips." -Miss Frances

About Miss Frances: Every morning, between 1952 to 1956, when the school bell rang across the NBC network, millions of youngsters gathered in front of the television sets from coast to coast to spend time with their beloved Miss Frances, schoolmistress of the TV's most outstanding children's program, Ding Dong School. Miss Frances, who was actually Dr. Frances Horwich, one of the country's foremost educators, had captivated both children and parents by combining nursery-school fun with sound education principles in her unique program. Miss Frances, with her Reinald Werrenrath, Jr., producer-director of the program, retells one of her most popular stories in this Ding Dong School Book for small children to enjoy again and again.
