The Paper Dolls
About this deal
Why not use this All About Me Activity Booklet alongside this paper doll template to let your students tell you more about themselves. Why is it important for children to be creative? Kids that draw and paint with enthusiasm often get spontaneous ideas. As they work on their project they learn how to make choices and combinations. They learn how to make solutions for a problem and learn the skills of ‘thinking out of the box’ and self-reliance. This book was better on a re-read! I already knew the twist, so I was mostly focusing on the mood/message, more so than the story. I really enjoy writing verse, even though it can be fiendishly difficult. I used to memorise poems as a child and it means a lot to me when parents tell me their child can recite one of my books.
The Paper Dolls is a stunning, lyrical story of childhood, memory and the power of imagination from Julia Donaldson, the author of The Gruffalo, and award-winning illustrator Rebecca Cobb. 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 . . . Vintage, Period Paper Doll Books, Historical, Uncut, Excellent Condition, Ephemera, Scrapbooking, Junk Journal, CraftingThis is the story of a girl who likes making paper dolls with her mother. The dolls become her friends and the characters of her fantasy journeys. Why does it seem to hold some things that are imaginary (like the white mice) and some things that were once real (like the kind granny and the butterfly hairslide)? My real breakthrough was THE GRUFFALO, again illustrated by Axel. We work separately - he’s in London and I’m in Glasgow - but he sends me letters with lovely funny pictures on the envelopes. Children develop and learn how to concentrate and focus. When children work in a calm and peaceful environment they can focus on the task at hand. The more often they practice working like this, the longer they will be able to concentrate. It will help and train them to focus for longer periods of time.
Finally, the last set of discussions touches the subject of artistic creation. The paper dolls were designed by the little girl with some help from her mother. (Later in the book, when the little girl is an adult, she too helps her daughter create paper dolls.) Suzy & Sam Paper Dolls. Coloring Set. Printables. Colouring. 112 items to colour and cut out.

They could decorate the box to make it look special with wrapping paper and label it ‘my memory box’. Encourage your child to tell another member of the family about their memory box and what is inside. This would be an opportunity for older family members to share memories with your child too.

I love the illustrations - I think it's lovely and the paper dolls were drawn exactly to the rhyme/repetition lines, found in the book. I would think it makes for a great read aloud book with your child(ren) as the rhymes are quite apt and beautiful.
When I started reading this book I wasn't sure where it was going as I didn't think there'd be much to a story about paper dolls but I was pleasantly surprised about the ending. The children enjoyed looking at each of the paper dolls and seeing all the places the young girl took them and it made them want to make some paper dolls too. I really like the ending and how we see that even if something or someone is gone they're still in our memories. This is a hard concept for young children to understand but the book shows it beautifully. Forgotten the title or the author of a book? Our BookSleuth is specially designed for you.

The Paper Dolls is the first picture book I read by Julia Donadson without Axel Scheffler's illustrations (I really like them!). Watercolour painting set 73 piece : Create art WITH instruction book. Great gift for Christmas /Birthdays/ Crafts/ Anniversary / Thank you Overall, it is an enjoyable book to read aloud to children to emphasise rhyming words and repetitiveness throughout the story. The paper dolls were well illustrated with great detail to go well with the description given. One of my television songs, A SQUASH AND A SQUEEZE, was made into a book in 1993, with illustrations by the wonderful Axel Scheffler. It was great to hold the book in my hand without it vanishing in the air the way the songs did. This prompted me to unearth some plays I’d written for a school reading group, and since then I’ve had 20 plays published. Most children love acting and it’s a tremendous way to improve their reading.
