Book Name : The Paper Dolls

Author: Julia Donaldson

Illustrator: Rebecca Cobb

Publisher: Macmillan Publishers

Theme/Topic:A little girl makes a string of paper dolls with her mother, and then takes them off to play in an imaginative world of her own…

What You’ll Love About This Book :Absolutely fantastic book. You may know the book “Gruffalo” by the same author.A stunning, rhythmical story of childhood, memory and the power of imagination from the author of THE GRUFFALO, and illustrating by Rebecca Cobb.The Paper Dolls is a very special book that tackles the delicate subject of loss. It uses the idea of a fragile toy, a paper chain of dolls that becomes a favorite toy to a little girl, and explores what happens to something important to us after it is broken or leaves us forever.
The dolls jump, dance and sing on their fantastical adventure through the house and out into the garden.One day a cruel boy snips the girl’s favorite paper dolls and the girl is NOT sad:I think this book touches on the passing of time as the book comes full circle with the character going from a girl to an adult.With beautiful pages,other than that a great read with charming illustrations to compliment it , this lovely picture book is ideal for sharing and will touch both children and adults alike. Full of imagination and perfect for late night reading.
I highly recommend this book for the way it introduces children, in a fun and charming way, to the idea that nothing lasts forever.
