The Paper Dolls

by Julia Donaldson

The Paper Dolls

Loved this book!

So fanciful and imaginative, yet wholesome and sweet.

It’s the story of a girl using her imagination as she plays with the paper dolls her mom cut out—until a boy cuts them up…  But the story comes around full-circle. It’s not at all sad, just very creative and reminds kids (and moms) the power of imagination.  This could have been a very dull treatment of a potentially dull subject (playing with paper dolls), but it’s not! I love how an oven mitt, a bedspread, and a pair of slippers become large as life when a child lets her imagination loose.

And the illustrations are wonderful.

Ages 3-7
