I really liked this piece. I figured that the package might have contained paints, but was thrilled to see that it held a doll - something that would indeed be a rare thing of beauty. Having girls myself it is easy to see how important and how much work (and perseverance!)it would take to see this dream through at a time when people had little.

I like this story. A lot of patience for a little girl. Good descriptions. Good things are worth waiting for. Nicely done.

Very sweet, with some wonderful characterization and descriptions. I really liked the "mugwump"!
What a sweet little girl who clearly already has some great values: hard work, money management, and patience. I love her! A very nice piece of writing.
