The Paper Dolls

We have included this lovely book in the grief & feelings sections of this book, because the young girl has made a precious and beloved chain of paper dolls. On every page, they are threatened by some imaginary creature in play, then another child snips them up and destroys them. Then the author takes us to visit them again in the place of memory, where she finds her grandmother, lost hair slide, and all sorts of beloved memories.

The breathtakingly beautiful story of one little girl and her five paper dolls.
A string of paper dolls go on a fantastical adventure through the house and out into the garden. They soon escape the clutches of the toy dinosaur and the snapping jaws of the oven-glove crocodile, but then a very real pair of scissors threatens.
