The Doll Violinist by Mayra Calvani
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was given the opportunity to review this beautifully illustrated book...The Doll Violinist by
Mayra Calvani (Author), Amy Cullings Moreno (Illustrator)
The book is about a little girl Emma, who lives in an Orphanage. She slips out every evening to go to a nearby Toy Store. She has spotted a doll that she really wants, but you know she will not be able to have.
I think the imagination of the young ones at this time of the year will be able to understand that some children are not as fortunate. They will also be asking questions about the ending and be able to add their own!
There are lessons being taught in this beautifully illustrated book, wonderful, timely book!
I received this book from the publisher Guardian Angel, and was not required to give a positive review.
