No child could resist this adorable, 9-inch-tall, rag-doll-soft Madeline--complete with appendix-removal scar! This Parisian schoolgirl sports a jaunty felt hat with a trailing black ribbon, perfect for the mischievous redhead who is not afraid of mice and pooh-poohs the tiger at the zoo. Her blue sailor dress is removable for frequent scar viewing! Each doll comes in a big, splashy gift box (12 inches by 12 inches by 4 inches) with one unabridged paperback edition of Ludwig Bemelmans's original Madeline ("and that's all there is--there isn't any more"). (Ages 3 and older) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The end papers and one illustration show the ile de cite, the pont neuf and the small park on the isle where now the tour boats are docked.
That's all specially meaningful to me because it is from the bridge and into the Seine that I threw the key to the lock I secured to the bridge,honoring the love my deceased wife and I had for each other. In the little park below my grandaughters husband proposed to her.
Although most young kids don't know about orphans and living in an orphanage, they immediately bond with little Madeline. Children enjoy its cadence and rhyming (not at all like Dr. Seuss' books). It's less obvious and a bit more sophisticated.
Depending on a child's age and cognitive level, this book can go from simply entertaining (1) to broadening a child's knowledge (2), to higher order reading skills (3). Examples: (1) Reading a story; (2) What's an orphanage? Where is France? Do children speak English there? Tell me, what is the big, grey thing on the book's cover? (3) Do you think the girls are all happy to share a big bedroom? If you were Madeline, how would you feel? Why do we have an appendix?
Taken at face value, this classic is a lovely tale. But, it can also be a springboard for meaningful conversations.
