My class loved it!

Using this book has helped me teach my class some very interesting lessons. I began by teaching them about literary art as we studied Anne of Green Gables. We had the doll and the book as we read the book in class. Next, we studied other countries and even a few of our own states, Alaska and Hawaii using dolls in their traditional outfits. Antoher project the students enjoyed was making their own book. Each child brought in a picture of their favorite doll or one of someone they knew. Then they had to write about what made the doll special. Each child then read their story to the class and this helped in their comunication skills and public speaking. We then made a booklet with a picture and story from each student. These will be treasured books that will be kept as keepsakes. I had the opportunity to get a doll artist to come speak to our class and to demonstrate how art dolls are made. Then the students made a simple felt doll that they could take home to remember the event. Our projects have made learning fun and we will keep our copy of Doll's Aren't Just for Kids in our class library.

This is a great book. I picked it up not knowing what to expect. I found myself drawn in by all the personal stories and the interesting information on all the different dolls. I didn't know there were so many different dolls on the market! Kathy and Fannie did a wonderful job with this book and its format. Anyone (especially doll lovers) will enjoy this book.
