Mother's Day Selection: 'Eloise's Mother's Day Surprise'
Published on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 12:26pm
Lisa McClatchy gives some traditional Mother's Day ideas in her Ready-To-Read Level 1 picture book titled Eloise's Mother's Day Surprise. This is a nice book to read with a young girl around six years old, partly because the main character, Eloise, is also six.
In the story, Eloise shows real joy in shopping for her mother's gift; reading the book draws you into the excitement of the shopping trip. Eloise is very thoughtful and the story ends with a pleasant surprise.
Check the book out and have fun letting your little girl read to you.
