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.
