The Doll Hospital
Ellie, age seven, has agreed to help me review The Doll Hospital by Kallie George and Sara Gillingham. Her review is as stated: “I really like this book! It was about nurses who were dolls. The dolls take care of other toys. That’s why I like this book so much! One day I want to be a nurse and take care of others just like Dr. Pegs does! I could read this book over and over. I liked the story, and the pictures were so cute.” Ellie is a very compassionate little girl, so it doesn’t surprise me that she would want to be a nurse and help other people, like she stated about Dr. Pegs doing for the dolls in her hospital. Dr. Pegs even bent her own rules about dolls only and helped another kind of toy! This book had a Doc McStuffin’s (child’s show on Disney) feel to it that I, as the adult reading it, say would appeals to almost any younger child, girl or boy, who finds satisfaction in helping others. Plus it helps with their self-esteem, knowing they can ask for help whenever they may need.
