about

A girl makes her own dollhouse in this picture book that celebrates creativity and imagination!
 
A little girl proudly walks the reader through her handmade dollhouse, pointing out the bricks she painted on the outside, the wallpaper she drew on the inside, the fancy clothes she made for her dolls, and the little elevator she made out of a paper cup. She’s proud of her house and has lots of fun using her imagination to play with it—until she discovers her friend Sophie’s “perfect” storebought house. Sophie thinks her house, with everything matching and even a toilet seat that goes up and down, is pretty perfect too, until both girls discover that the narrator’s handmade dollhouse is really a lot more fun.

"Readers will feel right at home with this cozy tribute to imagination." —Kirkus Reviews, Starred

"The realization that creative, outside-the-box artistry can be more inspiring than anything manufactured makes for a wonderful story." —Publishers Weekly, Starred

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet and Creative Book Both my daughter and my son enjoyed this book. The illustrations are so fun, because you can see how each of the things was made, and it inspired them to try as well. I also like the message about home-made versus store-bought, and how sometimes home-made is better.
