"Once a mother and father were going to Paris. 'Remember the special things to tell me, ' said the little girl, 'The things I'd like if I were there.' So the mother remembers". Together the author and illustrator bring Paris to life--not the Paris of guide books and postcards but the Paris every child will find wonderful and worth remembering. Full color.
From the Publisher:
"Once a mother and father were going to Paris. 'Remember the special things to tell me, ' said the little girl, 'The things I'd like if I were there.' So the mother remembers". Together the author and illustrator bring Paris to life--not the Paris of guide books and postcards but the Paris every child will find wonderful and worth remembering. Full color."Here is Paris presented as a series of memories by a parent who understands that 'the special things' to share with a child are not always the attractions featured in the guidebooks....The photographs...are gorgeous....The understated narrative complements but never distracts from the visual feast....An eyeful of delight."--Horn Book.
Annotation:
As her mother leaves for a trip to Paris, her young daughter reminds her to "remember the special things to tell me." Color photographs accompany the mother's poetic recollection of the magical city.

Charlotte Zolotow has contributed to the world of children's literature not only as an author but also as an editor and anthologist. THE PARK BOOK, her first, was published in 1944 while she was working as an assistant to the renowned children's book editor Ursula Nordstrom at Harper & Row. Three of her works, MY GRANDSON LEW, THE STORM BOOK, and MR. RABBIT AND THE LOVELY PRESENT were named Caldecott Honor Books. In 1962, MR. RABBIT AND THE LOVELY PRESENT was also named a Newbery Honor Book. In 1976 Zolotow became the editorial director of Harper Junior Books; in 1981 she was named vice president of Harper and Row. She eventually resigned this position to become an editorial consultant at Harper Junior Books and the editorial director of her own imprint--Charlotte Zolotow Books. Her daughter, Ellen, has also written children's books using the name Crescent Dragonwagon.
