When Rose and Lila's parents go to Africa for a year, for their work as doctors, Rose(age 10) and Lila(age 8) must stay with their maternal grandmother, whom they hardly know. As they snoop through her house (Book 1), they soon discover that "Far Nana" has a few secrets worth knowing. "Far Nana" runs a doll hospital from her home and has the intuitive skill of listening to the stories of the dolls she repairs. She tells these stories to the girls in the first person, from the point of view of the doll. In these books, the reader is reading the ongoing story of Rose and Lila adjustments to living with their grandmother and the historical story of a doll, in a story-within-a-story format.
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. I enjoyed Tatiana's story because it was lively and and had some unexpected surprises by the end.
Overall, this book is an excellent introduction to the series and I would recommend reading it first if you are interested in this series. We see Rose and Lila say good-bye to their parents and watch them discover their grandmother's secret. The girls begin to find that there will be some good things about staying with "Far Nana", including the wonderful stories of the dolls!
The reading level on this book is for grade 3. I would not recommend it for readers under 6 years of age because the intertwining stories may be confusing. A paper doll is included with each book, which may be of interest to some readers.

Lila and Rose are two unhappy girls. Their parents, both doctors, are going to teach medical techniques in Africa for a whole year, and they're leaving the girls behind! Dropped off with a grandmother they don't even know, the girls are anxious, sad, and very angry. To make matters worse, Far Nana is weird! She's a hippie who lives in a "gingerbread" house that has a "witches hat." Far Nana doesn't have a computer, or even a TV. How will the girls survive a whole year with this eccentric old woman? Soon, though, Far Nana reveals a big secret, and gives the girls a window into a world they never could have imagined.

Far Nana runs a doll hospital, and, on the day the girls arrive at her home, she is working on a very special bisque doll named "Tatiana." Through Far Nana, Tatiana tells the sisters about her past. In 1907, Tatiana was a birthday present for a young girl named Anya. Anya had a happy life with her family, but her life was in danger. As a young Jewish girl in Russia, Anya and her family were targets for Cossacks who ransacked Jewish homes and businesses, burning their buildings and even physically attacking the Jews. When the violence neared their home, Anya's father sent her with a family who was fleeing the country and heading for America. On her way to live with an uncle she has never met, and leaving almost all her possession (except for Tatiana) behind, Anya is filled with anxiety. Will she ever see her beloved father and grandmother again?

"Doll Hospital: Tatiana Comes to America," allows young readers to engage in historical events in a way that is usually not possible in a classroom. Through Tatiana's story, children will see that wars and conflicts aren't just a collection of dry facts in a book, but real stories of human drama that swirl around people much like themselves. Tatiana teaches the girls (and the reader) about the upheaval in Russia, the persecution of Jews, and what the United States represented to oppressed people. This book can be used as a springboard into larger discussions about historical and current events that touch us all and shape our past, our present, and our future.

This is one of the best series out there for girls ages 8-12. I really wish there had been more in the series. I hope one day there will be. It is very hard to find good books like this for kids in this age range. I am so sick and tired of all the vampire and zombie books out there for kids and wish people would just let kids be kids. This book series does while being exciting and touching. ADDITIONAL NOTES: Since posting this comment, I have now read the other books in the series with my daughter and I think in the book about Goldie there is a mention of a zombie. Oh well, I guess mentioning them is better than making them your subject for a young audience.

Rose and Lila are mad at their parents for making them stay with Far Nana. But Far Nana has a doll hospital...and a secret! She can hear doll's thoughts and stories!

Anya got Tatiana for her birthday. But when she and the Lolov family have to leave, she makes friends with Katia, a girl who's steerage. Anya is warned never to go down to the steerage place...or she could have her eye turned inside out with a buttonhook! Will Anya ever get to Uncle Elias's house now?

I liked this book very very much . I didn't even know what a doll hospital is. Now I know that you can fix dolls there. I wish I could have all the stuff in the doll hospital like wigs eyeballs and hats and shoes for dolls and cats .

This book is exciting because it tells what really happened when the Jews were persecuted in Russia. I especially liked the part where the children snuck up to their grandmother's attic when they weren't allowed to.
