Dolly's Diary

Clare Bromley and Holly Blackman (illustrator)
Picnics , kite flying and seaside adventures with Dolly and her new family
Are you exited dolly? beep,beep says Dolly. And so the fun begins…

I love Dolly’s Diary simply because: The illustrations are so beautiful and perfect for a early reader or to be read to a small person. I definitely thought this was for a younger child, though I still enjoyed it,.
By the first page I could tell this had a interesting story line but later on in the book I realised it’s a bit too young for me. Any how , Dolly manages to find her new family a nice place in a field for a lovely picnic. Later on we hear about Molly’s big ice cream and the ‘Dotto’ train. Then its bedtime, Night, Night Dolly.
On the inside cover is a Diary with the days of the week listed. This is interesting because it has spaces for you to write your own diary and it’s a great use of an inside cover with bunting and flowers on it.
Mummy read this to her toddler group they loved it!!!!! I would definitely recommend it for 2- 5 year olds particularly ones who like cars or camper vans.
Verdict: It’s a lovely book.
