5.0 von 5 Sternen Oooooooooooooooooooo I absolutely love Eloise
Eloise lives with her nanny, dog, and turtle in The Plaza Hotel in New York City. She knows that the modern six-year-old has to keep moving in order to get the full potential for fun each day from a busy hotel . . . especially when your mother knows The Owner. Between investigating, racing, and helping, she covers The Plaza from top to bottom. And if you visit the hotel,...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not for Kids
Kay Thompson was absolutely right when she called this a book "for precocious adults." I bought copies for my nephews and almost immediately returned the books when I discovered they were far too long to read as a bedtime story. The situational humor would be far, far over their 4-year-old heads. Too many inside jokes, characterizations targeted at adults,...

Eloise lives with her nanny, dog, and turtle in The Plaza Hotel in New York City. She knows that the modern six-year-old has to keep moving in order to get the full potential for fun each day from a busy hotel . . . especially when your mother knows The Owner. Between investigating, racing, and helping, she covers The Plaza from top to bottom. And if you visit the hotel, you'll see her picture just off the lobby on the 58th Street side.

Researchers constantly find that reading to children is valuable in a variety of ways, not least of which are instilling a love of reading and improved reading skills. With better parent-child bonding from reading, your child will also be more emotionally secure and able to relate better to others. Intellectual performance will expand as well. Spending time together watching television fails as a substitute.

To help other parents apply this advice, as a parent of four I consulted an expert, our youngest child, and asked her to share with me her favorite books that were read to her as a young child. Eloise was one of her picks.

Our daughter's mother and I often have meetings in The Plaza, and sometimes stay overnight there. On one trip, we bought this book in the gift shop and had Eloise sign it for our daughter before we left. Eloise wrote, "Sorry I missed you Hope to see you next trip Love, Eloise" Every time we went to New York with our daughter when she was six, we looked for Eloise but we kept missing her. It was lucky that her picture was always there to greet us.

After our daughter could read, we would encourage her to read this book while we were away at The Plaza. In that way, she could feel like she was with us.

Then when we went on trips, we would ask her what she would like to do in the hotel. If she couldn't think of anything, we would ask her what Eloise would do. Soon, an interesting plan would develop.

Eloise is a brave little girl. Her mother is always gone, and only invites her to come along when the sun is shining where her mother is. In the meantime, there's room service.

Eloise is a great book for the beginning reader, because the illustrations so nicely match up with the story. In fact, when your child has a chance to visit The Plaza, she or he will be delighted to see that it is so much like the book. This makes it seem like home for your child, as well. Also, there are not too many punctuations (especially periods) so it's easy to focus on the words.

The story is hilarious. Most adults wouldn't have the aplomb or the self-confidence of Eloise. For children, Eloise is a marvel . . . as well as a whimsical role model. What child will not want to have this story read and memorize it? That memorization then helps form the basics of learning to match the memory to the words. And soon, your child is reading along with you. At some point, he or she can take over and read the story aloud to you. What great fun for you both!

One of my favorite qualities in the story is that Eloise is never bored. She must be allergic to ennui. Yet so often youngsters today say they are bored, like war-weary Europeans after World War I. Eloise can help turn that attitude around into more active channels. No television addict is she!

After Eloise has been adopted as a niece into your family, I suggest that you use Eloise's story as a starting point to help your child understand herself or himself better. Why is Eloise so happy in The Plaza? Would your child like to live in The Plaza? Why is Eloise never bored?

Look for opportunities to explore your potential, wherever and whoever you are!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Farewell to a beloved author, 13. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
During my first visit to the Plaza Hotel I noticed the painting near the lobby, when I asked who is was of, the shocked answer was "Eloise, of course! Haven't you ever read that book?" Of course I ran right out and purchased a copy. I loved it and raced home from New York to share it with my children, who were familiar with the Plaza through the movie Home Alone 2. It is now one of their favorite books. They want to be Eloise and live in a hotel and run all over it. I don't blame them, everytime I visit the Plaza I think of that little girl and wish I could follow her on her travels and adventures. Someone at the Plaza told me that Eloise was based on Liza Minelli when she was young and her mother Judy Garland lived at the Plaza. I don't know if that is true or not, but it's fun to think so! Thank you Kay Thompson for bringing out the imp in me evertime I think of Eloise!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eloise will always be one of my favorite people., 22. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
I have loved Eloise since my sister gave me "Eloise at Christmastime" when I was a child. Even though I am now 40-something, I still read both "Eloise" and "Eloise at Christmastime" frequently. These books must be savored slowly. All illustrations by the fabulous Hilary Knight must be viewed with an appreciative eye for detail. Only then can one completely come to truly know and love Eloise's delightful, true personality. "Eloise" is the only one of four books that are still in print. I give her to my closest friends as a gift from my heart. I do not own, nor have I ever had the pleasure of reading "Eloise in Moscow" and "Eloise in Paris", as they, along with "Eloise at Christmastime" are, sadly, no longer in print. It is my one desire, to someday locate these two books, and possess them, too, for my very own.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely, utterly fantastic, 31. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book has been a favorite of mine for a long time now, ever since it first caught my eye on the shelf of a store. Kay Thompson's imaginative little girl, who tells precisely that she is six, and that she is "ELOISE", is so mischievous but immediately likeable; but credit also goes to Hilary Knight, for I cannot imagine a better drawn character for Eloise. Ms.Knight somehow just somehow manages to capture the essence of her, and I admire her for that.
Although I'am now 14, I still re-read the book when it's a rainy day or when I need to smile. Eloise brightens up my life, and I'am ever so grateful to my mom for buying it for me!!
If you haven't read Eloise, you don't know what you're missing out on, and I suggest that you hurry up and read it!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A favorite that will be passed on to future generations., 27. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I was given this book as a child. It is still one of my favorites that I own. I bought a new Eloise for my older daughter, who passed it onto her little sister. This is a story of a little girl, Eloise, who lives at the Plaza Hotel with her nanny. She has a very vivid imagnation and is quite an actress. Her adventures in a single day can leave the reader with panges of envy. If only I could do what she does and get away with it. Her nanny fits into the role of a "I missed the boat" of becoming a Mary Poppins graduate. Still you have to love her because you know she really loves Eloise. Sit back and enjoy the ride,
the elevator ride of course. It will keep you busy for a good 20 minutes. This book will be read more than once. I guarantee it.....

5.0 von 5 Sternen Childlike and Literary, 13. Juni 1999

(REAL NAME)   
A few weeks ago, I took a friend and her two 5 year old twin girls to dinner. There was a 45 minute wait, and we went to the bookstore next door. I was dreading the prospect of entertaining two 5 year olds for 45 minutes until I saw a copy of Eloise, which has been out of print for many years. I sat down and started reading to them. The time flew by. A few older women walked by and smiled. I like to think that they had read the book when they were little girls. The 45 minutes went by all too soon for me.
What can I say about Eloise? We named our DOG Eloise when I was a boy. It is both literary and true to children. It is one of the books (like Charlotte's Web or Black Beauty) that stays in your heart from childhood.
Give it to your children.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic...reminiscent...tears at my heart..., 13. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I grew up with the Eloise books, and it's how I learned of places in the world. I remembered how to say "farewell" in Russian to friends traveling there because of the "Moscow" book! Unfortunately, my Mother's copies have somehow disappeared within the past ten years. I am heartbroken; and when searching for copies, I found several of each: Eloise at Christmastime, Eloise in Moscow and Eloise in Paris. The "Christmas" book was over $600! The cheapest copy of the others was $180. I was heartbroken again! More than anything, I'd just like my childhood copies back. Anyone who has NOT read these books has truly missed a piece of childhood. LET'S GET THIS PUBLISHER TO RE-RELEASE ALL OF THESE BOOKS FOR US ALL!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eloise is a character dear to my heart., 26. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
My mother gave me "Eloise at Christmas" when I was a child because she said I reminded her of Eloise. I treasured this book for many years, but have been without it for the last ten. I join the others who were thrilled to find "Eloise" but have been searching for "Eloise at Christmas" to no avail. I hope the publisher reads enough comments to release the Eloise books. I love Eloise's style, her character, and her exploits, all brought to life by the wonderful illustrations. My three sons' children's books are packed away for the next generation, but "Eloise" is on MY bookshelf so I can reach for it anytime. How I would love to have "Eloise at Christmas" right there beside it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Searching for Eloise At Christmastime, 18. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
For going on forty-five years my husband's family has maintained a holiday tradition of reading Eloise At Christmastime. The old book is tattered and torn, scribbled-in by little hands of long ago, apart at the spine and lives in a black grade school binder, only to make it's annual holiday appearance for the second and now third generation of wee folk. I've searched for fifteen years at garage sales and antique shops and used book dealers for a copy to carry on the tradition. I've bought Eloise (great book, but not the same). I urge the publishers to carry on the life of this marvelous little six year old that lives at The Plaza and republish her other books. If anyone can bear to part with a copy I'd love to hear from you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eloise is a staple in what every child should read!, 18. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Eloise is one of those books that every child who has access to a puplic library should read! It is a modern day classic! Eloise is a headstrong, pushy, and very intelligent little girl. Her life at the Plaza is so different from what most children lead, it is almost fantasy. This little girl's intelligence, while not used to be "book smart" is instead used to imitate the adults around her which makes for a wildly hilarious book, and one that each and every one of us (unless they were absolutely PERFECT as a child) can relate to. While Eloise isn't a child you'd want to bring home, she is lovable and her extreme opinions make her the individual who has captured everyone from first grade teachers to first graders.
