Thoughtful, historical novel. Ship of Dolls by Shirley Parenteau is a historical novel about a girl living in the 1920s. The book is about a girl whose mother is a long way away and she wants to be with her mother, who she misses very much. There is a contest for the best letter and whichever child writes the best letter can go to San Francisco, where her mother is. The book tells you about a real event, the Friendship Doll exchange, from the context of a lonely girl who wants to be with her mother. My favorite thing about the book was that I learned about some historical events that I had not known about before. Kids who enjoy historical novels would like this book because it has many interesting historical details. However, it is slowly paced and would not be suitable for someone who likes action-packed, high tension, adventure novels. It takes patience to get into the novel, so some kids may need to read a bit and give it a chance before deciding whether they like it. I think that kids can relate to the characters even though the book takes place so long ago. I give the book 4 stars because I enjoyed it but it was difficult to get into at first.
