New Doll Books

I love childrens books, and books about dolls are even more of a treat.  I had some books on my Christmas list and received them all!

books 747 books 764I think The Best Loved Doll by Rebecca Caudill is my favorite of the bunch, but I love them all.  I may have read this book as a child, but I am not sure.

kitty's new doll 759Kitty’s New Doll by Dorothy Kunhardt is a sweet story featuring cats as the main characters.  I love the colorful watercolor-like illustrations.

the lonely doll 751The Lonely Doll by Dare Wright has actual photographs of a doll and teddy bears in different settings.  Two of my blog readers mentioned this book last year and the photos sparked a memory, so I put it on my wish list.

And, lastly is The Magic Nesting Doll by  Jacqueline K. Ogburn.  Laurel Long’s beautiful illustrations make this fairy tale about nesting dolls magical.
