Grandmother's Adobe Doll House
by Mary Lou M. Smith

Illustrated by Ann Blackstone

32 pages; ISBN 0-9644293-4-9.
$8.95
plus $6.00 shipping and handling.

A six-year old boy takes an imaginary friend on a finger-walking tour of his grandmother's dollhouse.
The dollhouse is constructed and decorated in the traditional style of the American Southwest. The rich, full color illustrations and well-researched text are a primer on the architecture, food, art and culture of New Mexico.

On the tour you will learn the Spanish names and pronunciations of art and architectural pieces, how an adobe is made, how the Two Grey Hills Navajo rug got its name, and even how the black designs were painted on the little clay pots called "ollas" in Spanish.
