Publisher Comments:

Betsy is invited to a party at which prizes will be given for the oldest doll, the best-dressed doll, and the doll who can do the most things. But Betsy chooses to bring Jennifer, a doll of a different sort--with her tangled hair and patched cheeks, she's Betsy's best-loved doll.

Synopsis:

This timeless story of the special relationship between a girl and her doll is told with directness and charm.

This was a favorite book as a child. Now my children love it too.
It is a refreshing book because it doesn't have any "scary" parts.
It sends a nice message about love not being about who is the
prettiest or most talented. It is a classic that all Moms should
discover.

Our local library does a feature each week on a prominent person and books. One of the questions asked of each person is "What was your favorite book as a child?" The question reminded me of this sweet book, available by Scholastic Book Order (remember those ?) and it probably cost about $.95 (maybe less!) when I saved up for it. It "celebrates diversity" by recognizing a special quality of a ratty,torn-up "best loved" doll in a room full of dolls brought to a party to impress the other party-goers.

I felt validated in my own sometimes "less than" possessions as a young child and allowed to make my own quirky choices, too.
