Here she is at Christmastime
Complete with tinsel and holly
Singing fa la la la lolly
And over the roar of the jingle bells
You can hear hear hear her say
It's absolutely Christmas
But I don't mind a bit
I give everyone a present
For that's the thing of it
So when it's everly Christmastime
And you're under your Christmas trees
Simply tinkle a bell and have a trinkle
And remember

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Eloise at Christmastime  Jan 22, 2007
It was one of my favorite books as a child and was one of my daughters favorites, as well. We loved reading it together. It is always tops on my list of books to give a baby girl for Christmas.
Christmas Eloise  Jan 10, 2007
I was thrilled to see a holiday Eloise book for me to share with my granddaughter. It was truly a holiday treat!
Am awful book for kids, and poorly written too  Dec 27, 2006
My 4 year old got this book from grandparents, which I observe appears to be the same generation that has written all the glowing reviews of this book. I guess it paints a picture that appeals to another generation, but I really don't get it.

This is the worst book I've ever read my child. I've read her quite a lot, and I am very progressive in my choice of books.

The English in the story doesn't make sense, including incomplete sentences and fragments of ideas. The story is almost stream of consciousness, but not quite. There is also a random attempt to rhyme, but often the rhyming words are several lines apart, after the child would recognize a rhyme had happened.

The plot seems to consist of: Eloise ran around the hotel, opened presents, got the annual call from her an absent parent, and ends with her proclaiming her nanny her best friend:

"Here is who my absolutely best friend
in this whole wide world is

The morals of the story seem to be:

-have fun at the cost of others
-you can leave your child with a nanny during Christmas as long as you phone
-christmas is about presents
-money is everything

Did I mention how long this book is? It's three or four times longer than any children's story has a right to be--and I enjoy reading books to my kids.

This Book Would Make Almost Anyone Happy  Mar 26, 2006
Celebrate Christmas (no, not "holiday" folks, CHRISTMAS) year-round with New York's favorite poor litle rich girl, Eloise! Inside this book we not only get to re-visit the ball of energy that is Eloise, but we're treated to an always more-insightful-than-it-seems view of life and society, circa 1950, as the Plaza Hotel girds itself top to bottom for that most festive of celebratory occasions. Eloise is in high form here, and so is Nanny. The usual cast of characters is back and it's a rawthur cheerful read that has made me smile since I was knee-high to a grasshopper.
Christmas at the Plaza  Nov 19, 2005
Now that the Plaza Hotel has closed for renovations and will never be quite the same again, is all the more reason to buy this book about a little girl named Eloise who lived at the Plaza in its glory days.Eloise makes friends of the hotel staff and in spite of her dear nanny who is supposed to be in charge, Eloise manages to have many adventures within the Plaza during the festive Christmas season. The surprise ending is delightful. A book for all ages, but especially nice for someone who grew up in the 1950's.
