Good book for girls

Review by Kentuckymom3

I like that this book was about a doll shop. I love dolls. The family was very interesting to read about. The story takes place during World War One. I found this very interesting. There were some sad parts and some happy parts.

Good Book

Review by smithychild

This is a great book. Anna's solves a lot of problems about how to keep the shop open. It' s hard for them to make money and cool how she figured out how to make money during the war. Really enjoyed reading this book.
