The Paper Princess, By Elisa Kleven

I found this great book on Amazon.  There were a lot of good reviews, so I ordered it for Paige for Valentines.  It was a great choice.  She has loved it.  The Paper Princess by Elisa Kleven, is the story of a paper doll who blows away from the girl who is making her before she is finished.  The doll goes on a journey and eventually ends up back with the girl who created her.  It is a sweet story and perfect for a doll loving 3 year old girl.  Paige and I have had a lot of fun with this book, reading and re-reading it.  One day after reading it, we decided to make our own paper dolls.  They weren't anything fancy, but Paige was thrilled.  We got out my cookied cutters and traced the gingerbread boy and girl and decorated them with glitter glue pens.  After those were done, Paige started tracing all sorts of different cookies cutters and making all kinds of things.  It was simple and super fun!
