    One thought on “The Apple Doll”

    1. 3.5 STARS I loved Kleven s Carousel Tale but somehow the illustration style that was charming and quirky for a tale with dinosaur brothers just didn t translate as well to humans, for me Also, this story, while sweet, seemed almost too obvious in its message I found the first few pages delightful when Lizzie plays in the apple tree and finds a perfect apple that becomes her friend, the head of her apple doll But the part with Lizzie being afraid to go to school, taking her doll to reassure her, [...]

    2. I loved this book about a young girl reluctant to go to a new school She s worried she won t have any friends, so she turns an apple from her favorite tree into a doll No one understands her, but then her mom suggests drying her apple and turning it into a granny apple doll Very sweet The emotions rang true with kindergartners Lovely illustrations.

    3. This is a pleasant story about starting kindergarten, loneliness, and dolls, that ends with directions on how to make a dried apple doll It sounds like fun

    4. I never knew you could make a doll out of an apple Fascinating And I liked how Lizzie stuck to her guns even though she was lonely part of the time A good quality to have, stand for what you need to.

    5. Mommy s review from 9 30 11 I ve said this before and I ll say it again I m a much bigger fan of full page illustrations At least almost full page illustrations It s not often I can get into block or oval illustrations or comic book style pictures This was half and half and while I didn t like how some of the illustrations were styled, the full pages were great IMO The actual pictures themselves were very nice I d have liked to see this with only full or almost full paged illustrations I liked t [...]

    6. Lizzy is a young girl with a common fear the fear of starting school, the fear of not being able to make friends But with the help of the girl s favorite apple tree and some creativity, both fears are overcome rather well.Lizzy loved her apple tree She loved to pretend it was a skeleton rattling in the autumn winda gingerbread cake with snowy frostinga blossomy springtime clouda leafy summer circus She loved to eat its apples Apples for crunching, apples for munching, apples for applesauce, cide [...]

    7. Lizzy is worried about going to school so she builds a friend Susanna out of an apple and takes her to school so she won t be lonely but the other kids don t seem to understand So the next day she leaves her apple doll at home but Lizzy is lonely at school However, Susanna begins to rot so her mother comes up with an idea that saves Susanna, they dry her out Then Lizzy takes her apple doll to sharing day and everyone loves her doll and the next day she teaches everyone how to make one and Lizzy [...]

    8. Lizzy loves to play in her apple tree She eats its apples and climbs its limbs and is happiest when she s around it When she has to start going to school, she is nervous, so she takes an apple from the tree with her She makes a body for it out of twigs, names it Susanna and carries it along But when she gets to school, the teacher tells her she can t have it Then her sister tells her that her doll is going to rot and get mushy Will that really happen to Susanna Cute, imaginative children s book [...]

    9. After Lizzy s parents help her turn an apple from her favorite tree into a doll by drying it out, Lizzy teaches her classmates to create apple dolls Soon their classroom and Lizzy s tree are both filled with plenty of new friends The textured patterns and warm, deep, yellows of the mixed media collage illustrations suit the old fashioned tone of the story Instructions for making an apple doll are given at the story s end, providing the perfect follow up activity for either home or classroom.

    10. I think this is a great children s book It talks about a little girl with a great imagination and is also relatable to kids that are nervous about school I think this would be a good book to share with kids to teach them to not be ashamed of who they are The little girl starts out self conscious about her doll but later learns to be proud of what she has made.

    11. Although a bit schooly, we like this story as a girl holds on to what is important to her, her prized apple doll, even through others taunting, but she turns it around by showing them how to make one too It also shows how to make an apple doll yourself in the back which we must do

    12. There is a lot of text and it could be ok when read to 1st or 2nd graders Lizzy is scared to start school, so she makes a doll out of an apple from her favorite tree to take with her on the first day and keep her company Includes instructions for making an apple doll.

    13. A fabulous story Endearing Well written Captivating And great instructions on how to make your own apple dolls which my girls LOVED doing for our fall apple party.

    14. Good going to school book in terms of exploring anxieties but through a non direct way The end has instructions for making your own dried apple doll Pretty fun.

    15. I love Elisa Kleven s collage illustrations, but I find apple dolls in general to be pretty creepy and this one is no exception I had to quit reading Sorry.

    16. Nice book with sweet illustrations about a little girl who feels an apple that she has picked is than just food, it s a doll Illustrations how to create an apple doll are in the back.

    17. Really loved this sensitive and beautifully written tale of a little girl and the companion she created for herself, to keep her strong in a sometimes rough world.

    18. SO cute This book shows that even children tease and feel self conscience about themselves But that can always be overcome
