You Know What I Love?

Lorena Siminovich. Dial, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8037-3777-8
A ragdoll with a smiling face, rounded limbs, paper-white skin, and rosy cheeks proclaims her love for her girl, describing their tender interactions and adventures, including picking out clothes together, scootering down to the mailbox, and having seafaring adventures in the bathtub. “You know what else I love? Sending you secret messages when I miss you,” says the doll as Siminovich shows a trail of hearts leading from the doll’s chest right to the girl’s mind. Filled with polka-dots, plaid, and floral patterns galore, Siminovich’s flattened digital collages clearly demonstrate the ways children project their emotional connections to their guardians onto cherished toys. Ages 3–5. Agent: Adriana Dominguez, Full Circle Literary. (Dec.)
