Eloise's Mother's Day Surpriseby Kay Thompson, Hilary Knight, Tammie Lyon, Lisa McClatchy
It is Mother's Day, and Eloise is in search of the perfect present for Mother, with help from Nanny and Weenie.
Children's Literature - Marilyn CourtotWho would suspect anything but a very exuberant Eloise? Since it is nearly Mother's Day, she wants to shop for something extra special. Off she and Nanny go, along with the inquisitive dog Weenie. Mother must haves the very best, so that means visits to the very special stores in New York City. First, they shop for chocolates at Godiva. Then, beautiful red roses, a ring from Tiffany's, and a hat from Saks Fifth Avenue. (These stores couldn't have paid for a better commercial with the trademark Godiva gold and the blue Tiffany shopping bag.) Eloise declaims her love of shopping, and what comes through is not only the tangible gifts to be sent to her mother, but the very special ones that she gives to Nanny who has served so completely as a surrogate mother. A Level 1 book in the "Ready-To-Read" series. There are helpful tips for parents and teachers printed on the inside cover. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
