Real Sisters Pretend

 

Title: Real Sisters Pretend

Author: Megan Dowd Lambert

Series: N/A

Recommended for: 4-8 yrs old, K-5

Pages: 32

Call Number/Link:  E Lambert, M.

Synopsis: This warm, engaging story, which unfolds entirely through the conversation of two adopted sisters, was inspired by the author’s own daughters, whom she overheard talking about how adoption made them “real sisters” even though they have different birth parents and do not look alike. I like how this shows the different type of parenting families that exist and that the sisters are from different cultures as well.  A great read aloud in a classroom or for a family to read together.

Synopsis:   Amelia and her best friend, Princess Sparkle-Heart, do almost everything together, so when the Princess suffers an accident, Amelia’s mother puts her sewing box to good use and makes the doll better than ever.

Comments:   I love this book!  It seemed like it would be girly because it’s the story of a girl and her doll, but it’s not.  Princess Sparkle-Heart is a perfectly lovely princess doll until [cue ominous music]…  a jealous dog tears her to shreds.  The result: Amelia’s mom gives Princess Sparkle-Heart an amazing makeover and creates the fiercest princess doll ever!
