Eloise
Eloise: with audio recording | Kay Thompson
24 posts | 37 read | 12 to read
Eloise is a little girl who lives at The Plaza Hotel in New York. She is not yet pretty but she is already a Person. She is interested in people when they are not boring. If you take her home with you, you will always be glad you did.

Me. Salome said so
He is the Manager.”

I like how this book has a specific color scheme throughout the entire book.

Eloise is a picture book written by Kay Thompson with drawings by Hilary Knight. This book has a very limited amount of words on each page. Some have more than others, though. The pictures mainly tell the story. The main character, Eloise, is shown doing many different things relatable to kids.

My daughter‘s namesake and she has the personality to match! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

Day9 #Adventrecommends. Eloise is always a good bet. Make sure you read it out loud, with the proper accent (the Plaaaaaaaza. Dahling. Etc.

“I live on the top floor
And if I want to go anywhere
I simply take the elevator”

I‘d forgotten about spunky little Eloise. So glad to hang out with her again today.

Thought I'd give it a go (as I mostly read non-fic in childhood). Ebook formatting is odd. With its mandatory horizontal two page layout, everything is so tiny! Must try on larger device.

Leftcoastzen Love her ! A dear friend of mine gave me the complete stories in a hardcover book , I treasure it.Think you would benefit from a more traditional format. 1y
IamIamIam I've never read this either! I'm doing a lot more middle grade in the last few years than I have since I was about 8! Lol 1y
rubyslippersreads ❤️ Eloise! There‘s a rumor she was based on Liza Minnelli. 😊 1y

Congrats on your milestone and thank you for the giveaway!

Ah, it got a little cut off but oh how my daughter and I loved Eloise. I had gotten a book for her signed by Hilary Knight, illustrator of the Eloise books.

GondorGirl I'm so jealous of your signed copy! I read this book with my mom when I was little too. ❤ 2y

Eloise is a mischievous but charming six year old who lives on the top floor of The Plaza Hotel in New York City. She spends her days hanging out with the staff and other guests of the hotel. Now wouldn‘t that be fun and who wouldn‘t like to be in her shoes for a day?

vkois88 Great choice! ❤ I love the Eloise books. Definitely debated using that name while pregnant 😊 2y
mrp27 Love Eloise. The Plaza Hotel in NYC had an adorable gift shop that featured Eloise, where naturally I bought my copy of the book. They remodeled a few years back and I don't know if it's still there. 2y

I'm Readathoning under my warm Chicago Bears blanket this morning at #Hour 9 of #24in48. This is the oldest children's book I own. I wanted to read a book published the year I was born and found this at a garage sale for a dollar. 🙌🏻
P.S. I also grew up with Shari Lewis (Lamb Chop!) and Captain Kangaroo, and I'm still a kid at heart. 😁❤️

PurpleyPumpkin Looks like you‘ve gotten a great start for the readathon! Glad to see you‘re snuggled up with some great reading material. 📚 2y

So, this was returned to the library today, and there were all kinds of ooh's and ahh's as I scanned it in 😆👏🏻. I love book lovers--I feel a connection, ya know? Bet you liked this book as a kid too, right? 😉 #LitsyLovesLibraries

AndreaReads I wanted to name my (someday) daughter Eloise! But my husband had a crazy ex-girlfriend named Ellie, so I'll probably lose that one. Oh well. Maybe my next puppy can be Eloise! 2y

Bklover My grandmother used to read this to me with this wonderful New York accent. Or some accent- she called it “the Plaaaaaaaza.” Whenever I read Eloise I hear her voice. ❤️ 2y

My favorite thing about being a museum educator...fun exhibits like this! I learned so much about the Eloise books at the New-York Historical Society!

I remember absolutely adoring Eloise as a little girl, so I was delighted when I had a chance to reread it this weekend to the sweet 3-year-old who made me an auntie. I've literally been waiting for this for the entire 3 years she's been on this planet! And I was super grateful she doesn't know how to read yet, since I had to make major edits! (Apparently this really was written for "precocious grownups" ?) @mrsmarch

mrsmarch Hard to believe we are #litposting about the same 3 year old this weekend! 😁 3y
SheilaChew I loved reading this to my kids when they were little too! 3y
Pinkmeghan @mrsmarch at least I heavily edited Eloise's hijinks! We skimmed right over pretending to be sick for example! 3y
Pinkmeghan @SheilaChew it was so fun! I had forgotten a lot of it! 3y
