Product Description

The year is 1930, and Rebecca and her family are celebrating their first Christmas on their farm in Wisconsin. More than anything Rebecca wants the beautiful porcelain doll she's seen in the store window, but she knows it's been a hard year and her parents have no money for fancy toys. Still, she is disappointed - until Mama brings out the funny little doll made of gingerbread, with yarn hair and scraps of cloth for a dress.

Publisher's Description

“This is a warm and engaging Christmas story set during the Great Depression. Rebecca is nine years old when her large, close-knit family moves into a tarpaper farm house in Wisconsin. Because times are hard, she does not find the porcelain doll she had hoped for under the Christmas tree. Instead, her mother surprises her with a thick gingerbread doll named Button Marie, which she loves ‘in a way you could never love anything from a store.’ . . . These paintings (which are reminiscent of the work of Andrew Wyeth) convey a strong sense of the affection that pervades the family over the generations. The emphasis on such familiar things as family storytelling and rituals makes this a slice of Americana that the picture book crowd can savor.”—ALA Booklist

“Lloyd’s sharply observed realistic watercolors—in a palette somewhat grayed as if to recall old b&w photos—beautifully reflect this well-told story’s warmth and focus on essential values.”—Kirkus Reviews

    My Aunt got this book for me, and I loved it. The pictures are great, and so is the story. It's just so great. I have many dolls myself, and now I wished I had my own gingerbread doll. Over all it's great!
