Synopsis by Alice Day
Guest Julia Child reads Florence and Eric Take the Cake by Jocelyn Wild in this episode of the popular series aimed at children from preschool through fourth grade. There is comical confusion when the main characters pick up the wrong box from the bakery for their grandmother. The story inspires LeVar Burton to visit Hanson's Cakes, and viewers can take in all the luscious sights. Reading Rainbow: Florence and Eric Take the Cake is another well-executed show that combines stories, field trips, and interesting activities related to the featured book.
