    You know it's a good children's book when after your child falls asleep you feel the need to read to the end to see what happens This book follows a girl named Mary who's family is suffering through the Depression They are a farming family living on the Canadian prairies and can't afford to buy their children new shoes or Christmas gifts Mary gets a handmade doll for Christmas who becomes a good friend There is intense rivalry between Mary and her sister which is a key part of the story Things I loved about the book beautiful metaphoric languagepoetic and several cuts above the typical children's books we find love reading my child historical fiction because it's educational but the CanCon aspect is particularly appreciated eg they mention the CCF the ending made me cry reallyit evoked real emotionsP liked it too and it's a book I would like to re read to her in a few years because I think she'd get layers out of it This is the second book we've read from Orca Book Publishers and both were excellent
