Genre: History. Poetry.
Historical Time Period: 1800’s. 1900’s. 2000’s.
Geographical Relevance: Global.
Authenticity: The author Dinah Washington is professor of English and Children’s Literature at the University of South Carolina. Many of the dolls that she writes poetry about in Sitting Pretty, are dolls that she, or loved ones, owned. At the back of the book, the Author’s Notes include much provenance about individual dolls.
I recommend this book for all ages. It’s a gem.
Thanks for reading The Picture Book Pusher.
