Fast response from seller, book condition as described!
This is an excellent book that talks about a boy who wants a doll and no one seems to understand. It was the grandmother that explained playing with the doll will help William be a loving, nurturing father when he grows up. Its a great way to tell a child that any toy can be played with regardless if your a boy or girl.
