Addie’s Apple Doll

I always read THE APPLE DOLL by Elisa Kleven at this time of year to my second grade classes.  It’s a story about a lonely girl who finds friends after she shares her apple doll at school. She learns how to dry the apple in lemon juice, and the apple starts to look like a “grandma” or a “grandpa”.   The students are often interested enough to take home the directions for making their own apple doll, and SOMETIMES an apple doll will appear in the library the next week or so!  This morning, Addie in Ms. Lee’s class brought me her apple doll.  Here is Addie showing her doll:



Addie reported that she made the apple doll with her grandmother, and she sewed some of the clothes herself.  GOOD JOB, ADDIE!  Your doll is so cute.
