This lavishly illustrated children’s tale is based on the great American folk music heritage. The delightful song tells the story of Liza Lou, who dreams of owning a china doll after seeing one in a peddler’s cart. Owning a china doll, however, would be a luxury far out of reach for a poor mountain girl from the Ozarks. One of the endearing charms of this song is how Liza is able to provide countless ideas that could lead to raising money to buy a china doll... but alas, to no avail. Momma, Buy Me a China Doll includes a link to download the song, a description of the history of the song, and the notation of the song.
