More than anything, Willa adores her ragdoll, Rosie, made just for her by Grandma. Together, through the seasons, they picnic, pick berries, and jump in piles of leaves. But one winter's day, on a bumpy sleigh ride to Grandma's birthday dinner, Rosie falls into the snow and disappears. Willa is inconsolable -- and not even a new gift from Grandma helps. Then, mysteriously, Rosie reappears at Grandma's door. Can Willa find a way to thank the special friend who returned her doll?
With its charming folk-style illustrations, this beautiful picture book will warm the heart of every child who has ever had a favorite, beloved toy.
"When Willa arrives at her grandparents’ cabin she is presented with a small sewn bear that matches Grandpa’s new trousers.... Later, on the way home, Willa leaves the toy bear in the snow in exchange. 'My friend will love you,' she whispers… and indeed, the last scene is a view of the live bear, curled in his den, clutching the cloth one.... A sweet tale of giving and giving back." -- Kirkus Reviews
