Kiki & Coco in Paris is about a girl who goes to Paris with her doll, Coco. They explore Paris together, but Kiki accidentally leaves Coco at a café, and there is a page or two before the doll and her girl are reunited.
Remember when I told you that my Mom and I have an obessesion with all things French? This is a book that you will love if you’re like us.
It is a very sweet story. I must admit, it’s not the best picture book (it feels a little like someone’s photo book), but my girls LOVE it and I immediately wanted them both to have sweet and simple rag dolls like Coco (made by the very talented Jess Brown). Alas, I could not afford Jess Brown dolls! So, almost two years ago, I searched Etsy, and found some adorable substitutes. They look very French, don’t they? And they have been very well-loved.
Brontë and Stella both love for me to substitute their names for Kiki, so I usually read the book like this: “Stella takes Coco to a special shop where dolls like her are made… When she is placed back in Brontë’s hands, Coco’s feet dangle just right….”
It’s a sweet book for girls who love dolls, which is why it’s such a hit at our house. I probably read this book at bedtime at least once a week.
I’m not sure if any libraries would have Kiki and Coco in Paris, but you could probably request it from your local bookstore or you can order it on Amazon.
