Rambunctious six-year-old Eloise loves riding her bike and playing with her little dog, Weenie. She does not, however, like math lessons with her tutor, Philip. She stalls, pretends to misunderstand Philip, and teases him too! Eloise knows math, she just doesn’t like her math lessons every week. It feels like the longest thirty minutes of the day.
Eloise Has a Lesson might bring back memories of homework and piano lessons. Children and parents alike will enjoy this short, but sweet book. Children who are beginning to read on their own will appreciate this book with its simple story, increased vocabulary, and longer sentences. This Ready-to-Read Level One book will help young readers experience success from the start.
