The Christmas Doll

Susan is very young when she’s evacuated from London during World War II and sent to live in the countryside with a family she has never met. Uncertain of her new surroundings and desperately missing home, she holds out little hope for the months ahead. Then, on Christmas Day, she receives a doll that she names Lizzy. It is the best present she’s ever had. Only decades later, when Susan and her great-granddaughter Evie bring the precious doll in for repairs — and Susan narrates the tale of her tumultuous childhood — does she realize the true meaning and scope of the gift she received that long-ago Christmas morning.

This sweet tale captures the joy of a young girl in wartime England and how her simple act of generosity and kindness changes her life forever. From the bustling endpapers showing the repair team at work restoring a legacy to glowing illustrations evoking nostalgia and warmth, this cozy tale based on an episode of the British TV series The Repair Shop is a festive read-aloud to share at the holidays.
