I love dolls, especially the handmade variety and recently I was lucky enough to buy one of Little Jenny Wren's creations on Etsy.

I have named her Madeline and she is a redhead. The hair and the red beret reminded me of the well known story about a little french schoolgirl ....

written by Ludwig Bemelmans, first published in 1952. I have a lovely nostalgic memory of my Dad reading this story to me. Heidi and Milly Molly Mandy and What Katy Did were favourite bedtime stories too.

These books must all be timeless treasures. I think I shall enjoy sharing them with my granddaughters.
