Don't Worry I'll Find You
by Anna Grossnickle Hines

See the real Abigail doll.

"Anna Grossnickle Hines creates a mini-drama from the ordinary events of everyday family life. Despite her mother's sensible caution, Sarah insists on taking her doll, Abigail to the mall. When Abigail is accidentally left behind in a shoe store; her young owner slips away to search for the doll and, consequently, is separated from her mother. The parallel construction - Sarah's concern for Abigail, the mother's concern for Sarah - offers an analogy comprehensible to the very young. The mood is underscored by softly detailed illustrations executed in pastel tones, which reassure without seeming sentimental." Hornbook 8/86
