About This Book
Each book in this series is a clever mix of past and present that brings a different historical era to life. Sisters Lila and Rose, ages 8 and 10, are spending the year with their eccentric grandmother, who runs a doll hospital. In each book she tells her granddaughters the story of a different doll.
In "Tatiana Comes to America" the girls listen to a story about a doll who escaped Russia in 1907 during a time of violence against the Jewish people. Her family came to America to escape the persecution. Tatiana boards a ship for America with her girl, Anya.
