"The Wooden Doll" by Susan Bonners


      “Stephanie longs to play with Grandpa’s wooden doll, but it remains out of her reach, high on top of Grandma’s china cabinet. One day when no one is looking, she climbs on a chair and brings the doll down. To her surprise, she discovers it has a secret: a whole family of dolls is nestled inside it. But that’s not the doll’s only secret. On it’s bottom is written a name, Stephania, the name that only  Grandpa calls her. Is the doll for her? Then why hasn’t Grandpa given it to her?
      Susan Bonner’s exquisite paintings capture the relationship between a little girl and her immigrant grandfather in this beautiful story of a family treasure.” Inside Cover
