Ship of Dolls
Author: Shirley Parenteau
Can a ship carrying Friendship Dolls to Japan be Lexie's ticket to see her fun-loving mother again? Inspired by a project organized by teacher-missionary Sidney Gulick, in which U.S. children sent more than 12,000 Friendship Dolls to Japan in hopes of avoiding a future war, Shirley Parenteau's engaging story has sure appeal for young readers who enjoy historical fiction, and for doll lovers of all ages.
