B is for Bookworm

Human Development Degree, Book-loving aunt

This adventurous story is full of facing fears, some sleuthing, and problem solving, and I love that it has that "Toy Story" feel of toys being alive. Even though the cover may cause some boys to think it's a "girl book," I think this book is such a fun gender neutral book! When Annabelle Doll finds out she might have a missing Aunt Doll somewhere in the house, she decides to face everyone's biggest fear: leaving the dollhouse. Not only does Annabelle end up facing her fear, but she rallies together the entire Doll family and inspires them to face their fears on the quest to find their missing family member. They have to face cats, breaking, getting around, and humans (among other things), but they show bravery, courage, and dedication in their goal.
