Hard to know where to put this, but for age level we think it belongs at about second and third grade. However, the instructions are certainly not ""easy reading"" and would probably have to be read with adult aid....It is a how-to-do book, for the child who is enthusiastic about paper dolls, particularly the homemade variety. Here are specific patterns for various basic types of paper dolls,- woman doll, man doll, teen age doll, boy and girl dolls, baby dolls, a jointed doll, dolls with backs, dolls with many heads, standing dolls, chain dolls, and so on. These are done by tracing and transfer. The designs for clothes are not sized to the individual doll, but general layout and ideas for clothes, accessories, furniture, houses, games, etc. are done small scale for suggestion rather than actual copy and cutout. The instructions are specific in relation to such practical details as making a dummy of the doll for fitting, preparing a traced foundation on which to draw the clothes, using of tabs, coloring, making hats, variety of papers to use, of fabrics, how to get more elaborate effects, and so on. Attached to end-papers are cutouts of a creche. Good book to suggest for convalescents or to keep on hand for a rainy day.
