I loved this story. I loved how girly and nice they were. Not all books portray girls like that. I like how it was laid out too. 🥰😃👧🏼

Great Book!

Review by EastsideBK

I loved reading about Anna and her adventures with her dolls. I especially found it interesting how her Dad was able to start a business repairing dolls.

Great Book

Review by redpandasrule

I enjoyed this book. It is about Anna and her two sisters. They start to come up with ideas to make money for their parents and decide to make dolls instead of fixing them.
