Imagination play is one of the best parts of being a child as there are never any limits to where the imagination can take a young mind. Play often offers freedom on how to use your imagination but what if there were so many rules such as no Nnjas allowed at a tea party? Well, sisters Dollop and and Lili are put to the test in this children’s book that we are reviewing today.
We are delighted to introduce our readers to, Dollop and Mrs. Fabulous, written and illustrated by Jennifer Sattler.
Make way for bunny Dollop and her sister, Lily (otherwise known as Mrs. Fabulous).
It’s looking like just another boring day playing monster vs. monster when Dollop overhears her big sister, Lily planning…a tea party? Lily is happy to have Dollop join her, as long as Dollop follows a few simple rules. There are no ninjas allowed and absolutely NO burping. But there is dressing up and sipping tea with your pinky finger in the air and making mindless small talk. Suddenly what started out as a fun idea is nothing but a bunch of rules. Can these two unalike sisters find common ground?
As the oldest sister in my family, this book reminded me a lot of growing up and playing with my younger sister. It was really cute! Dollop and Mrs. Fabulous touches upon how sisters can fight but at the end of the day they can find common ground to get along. Most importantly it shows that imagination is a marvelous tool that shouldn’t be contained by so many rules. Like who doesn’t want a ninja at their tea party?! I know we sure would love that!
We just adored this book and the illustrations are vibrant and captivating to the eye. We also enjoy books that have monsters, tea parties, ninjas and a whole lot of family fun.
