Doll on the Top Shelf

Overview

Annie Mae and her friends imagined that another holiday season would come and go, and they would be overlooked again. After all, who would see them there in the shadows on the top shelf of Mr. Carenot's toy cabinet? All the sparkly new toys would surely catch shoppers' eyes first. But then Natalie and her grandmother walked through the front door, and their Christmas started to look very different.

Editorial Reviews

San Jose Mercury News
.The one book-a hand-down winner-that the kids and I agreed on was a richly illustrated book called The Doll on the Top shelf, by Ruth Turk. It tells a quaint story of a little girl's choice of a doll, based not on appearance-the child is blind-but on how the doll feels. The book is made to appeal to both sighted and visually impaired readers, and the text is in both Braille and type on every page.

As I read, the children (ages 5 to 9) wanted to run their fingers along the raised dots. The experience got the older kids curious and they studied the back of the book, which contains the Braille alphabet and explains Louis Braille's system of textured reading and writing. Kindergarten children as well as third-graders responded to the story, a subtle lesson about generosity and transcending the urge to judge by appearances.
