Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
For several generations, a porcelain doll made during the Lincoln administration has been passed down in the family. When a girl turns ten she is given custody of the doll. Kate loves to play with the doll whenever she goes to Nana's house. When she turns nine, Nana decides that Kate is old enough to become the new owner and of course she is allowed to select her own name for the doll. Once the doll comes home, Kate's mother isn't so sure that her daughter is ready for the responsibility. Kate rises to the occasion and proves that she is mature beyond her years. Her reward is not only the doll, but also a renewed interest on her mother's part to be more involved with the doll and thus her daughter. It is a very positive story. Kate is almost too good to be believable—the kid everyone wishes they had. Illustrations fill every page and they show an intergenerational family and a girl who, in the times of this story, is at an age when she still cares about dolls. Part of the "All Aboard Reading" series Level 3. 2002, Grosset and Dunlap,
— Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-Just after Kate turns 9, Nana gives her the 150-year-old china doll that the girls in the family usually got on their 10th birthday. When the child arrives home from her visit with her grandmother, her mother puts the heirloom away, saying that Kate isn't ready for it yet. However, the youngster proves her maturity by giving a once-favorite doll to a girl who can't afford to buy it at her family's yard sale, and Mom gives her Dora Anne. Colored drawings on each page enliven the text. This rather predictable story with a comfortable and satisfying theme works well as an early chapter book.-Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
