A Candy Heart for a Granddaughter Mar 8, 2007
I am enjoying being a grandmother so much and part of this enjoyment is passing on pieces of our heritage which includes toys/dolls like Ragedy Ann and Andy. My grandchildren are bi-racial and I came across a lady who makes Ragedy Ann and Andy dolls in all ethnicities. I bought an Ann doll and had her make an Andy doll for the grandson to give in their Easter baskets. These dolls will have Easter bunny ears on and the oldest will also recieve the book "How Raggedy Ann Got Her Candy Heart", and I will also show her the stiched heart on her doll. This story by Johnny Gruelle is a classic for children and when given with a doll that the book is based on is great fun as well as telling a loving story and passing herritage on.
Great introduction to Ann Nov 30, 2003
This is the perfect book to introduce little ones to Raggedy Ann. My child just turned 5 and got her first Ann and Andy dolls, and they are even more special to her after reading this story. Perfect for young ages.
MY First Raggedy Ann Books! Feb 12, 2002
Here's another set of books I grew up with. I owned all of the Raggedy Ann books listed here except the Nice Policeman. All of them were my mother's books before me. They are truly wonderful books for little girls and boys to read, with lively illustrations in bright colors perfect for little eyes to enjoy. The stories are sweet and full of adventure, but still teach good lessons to young readers. These are among the timeless classics that children from any generation will love.
A heartwarming story about the beginnings of Raggedy Ann. Oct 16, 1999
I grew up with Raggedy Ann and the story books that had been given to my mother when she was a child. I still have these original books (copyright 1918) and shared them with my daughter when she was a small child. The Raggedy Ann stories are wonderfully warm, light hearted stories that entertain, but also make a point about kindness. Raggedy Ann is always an 'upbeat' doll who is an eternal optomist! The story of "How Raggedy Ann Got Her Candy Heart" gives the reader the back round of the 'I Love You' that is on the 'heart area' of a REAL Raggedy Ann. In this story, Raggedy Ann is tied to tail of a kite (to help steady it) and flies high in the sky. By accident, she is 'falls' into a bucket of paint. From this misfortune, she weaves a wonderful story about her adventure away from the nursery. One of the young painters rescued her from the paint and took her home to clean her up. She was washed and hung on the line to dry. While drying there, she was visited by a couple of robins with whom she shared a little of her yarn hair and some of her stuffing so that they could build a nest for their family. Before she is returned to Marcella (the little girl who owns her), the painter's wife re-stuffed Raggedy and gave her some new yarn hair. Just before the final stitches were sewn, the painter's wife went to her cabinet and got out some little candy hearts. She sorted through them until she found the perfect one. In bright blue letters, the words "I Love You" were printed on the heart that she chose to sew into Raggedy Ann. When she returned to the nursery with the other dolls, Raggedy Ann told all about her adventure . . . and her new 'heart'. This book is a must for the real Raggedy Ann lover. It took me back to my childhood and the time I spent with my Raggedy Ann and the quality time with my mother -- reading these wonderful stories together!
