“The paper dolls” by Julia Donaldson, very sweet story!

We read “The paper dolls” by Julia Donaldson in the library. It is a lovely sweet story of a little girl who made paper dolls, she gives each doll a name. The dolls go on a fantasy journey around the little girl’s home and garden. There are a few threats along the way, with the final automate danger of the scissors…The book has a sweet ending!

The story is written with a beautiful rhythmic rhyme which Julia Donaldson is famous for. The illustrations by Rebecca Cobb are absolutely stunning and fit perfectly with the story! paper-dolls

When we returned from the library, of course we had to make our own paper dolls. The children designing then naming each doll! Definitely worth a read! xxx
