Read full description of the books:
My heart aches for Patricia Polacco. I also admire her for sharing this emotional letter from her deceased mother, Mary Ellen, with her readers. It is also evident where Polacco acquired her storytelling skills...her mother can also write a beautiful, moving story.
Polacco unwrapped Betty Doll a year after her mother's passing and found a letter packed into the box with the doll. The letter shared memories of how her mother came to make Betty Doll, how the doll comforted her through tough times, chatted with her when she was sick, watched over her as she grew, and much more. Every memory was heartfelt. Mary Ellen was passing down her memories to her daughter so that she could be comforted in her absence, I have not lost my mother but I have experienced grief and I know that this gesture meant the world to Polacco and Betty Doll will always be cherished.
I love that Polacco transformed the letter and Betty Doll into a book that can be shared with her children, nephews, nieces, and other family members...Mary Ellen is not completely gone this way.
Polacco's illustrations are beautiful, capturing the major moments and events of her mother's life. I also enjoyed the real-life photos that were included in the book, they made the book more personal and of course more emotional.
I recommend this book to anyone that has lost a mother, grandmother, loved one or to anyone that has a close connection with a childhood doll.
