This is a pretty little book about a girl and her doll and the love they shared. Sophie had a doll that had been passed down to her from her mother and grandmother. Now it was her turn to enjoy this treasure. She soon though realizes the age and fragility of the doll as its nose is chipped, it looses an eye when left alone in the garden, its hair falls out when combing it. In all though it is a neat book. Brings back memories to playing with my dolls growing up.
