PAPER DOLLS by Julia Donaldson/Rebecca Cobb is another book she received for Christmas (thank you Santa!) and when I read it for the first time, I knew right away what would happen…

PAPER DOLLS (poupees de papier) de Julia Donaldson/Rebecca Cobb est un autre livre qu’elle a recu a Noel (merci le Pere Noel !) et quand je l’ai lu pour la premiere fois, j’ai su tout de suite ce qui allait se passer…

Of course, she asked us to make her paper dolls!! First time I made them, I was quite happy with the result but she was not and put them in the garbage bin: mine were identical! She wanted paper dolls exactly like on the book!! So after a bit of explanations (that they would never look exactly like on the book) and creativity (to create paper dolls that don’t look alike), Allan made her several sets of paper dolls that she coloured (first generation). And now, she even makes them herself (2nd generation)!

Bien entendu, elle nous a demande de lui faire des poupees en papier !! La premiere fois que je lui en ai faites, j’etais assez contente du resultat mais pas Juliette et elle les a jettees a la poubelle ; les miennes etaient toutes identiques ! Elle voulait des poupees en papier exactement comme sur le livre !! Donc apres quelques explications (qu’elle ne seront jamais exactement comme sur le livre) et de creativite (de creer des poupees qui soient un peu differentes), Allan lui en fait plusieurs sets qu’elle a coloriees (1ere generation). Et maintenant, elle les fait  meme elle-meme (2eme generation !!).

Anyway, this book is great – the illustrations and the story are just awesome. But if you have a little girl that is a bit OCD like ours, be prepared for the consequences!!

Bref, ce livre est superbe – les illustrations et l’histoire sont geniales. mais si vous avez une petite fille un peu maniaque sur les bords, soyez prets aux consequences !!
