From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K When Sarah's mother takes her to the "big mall" to buy some new clothes, Sarah insists on taking her doll, Abigail, with her. Although Mama expresses some concern about bringing Abigail, Sarah prevails. Predictably, the doll is temporarily lost and so is Sarah. However, Sarah recalls Mama's words, "Now, if you get lost. . .just stay put and don't worry, I'll find you." When Abigail and Sarah are reunited with Mama, "Mama gave us both the biggest hug in the world." White space used with softly colored illustrations allows children to focus in on the uncluttered detail of the mall and its ordinary shoppers, while Sarah clearly stands out once she dons her new red sneakers. Illustrations correspond with the text, narrated in first-person by Sarah. Children will identify with this ordinary experience presented in a small format suitable for one-to-one sharing. Parents, however, may well want to interject their own advice on how to behave in a similar situation. Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Lib .

From Publishers Weekly:

Sarah, her mother and (at Sarah's insistence) her doll Abigail go shopping at the big, confusing mall. "Well, if you lose her, don't complain to me about it," Mama warns, adding that Sarah should stay put if she gets lost. All hands are held tight, but the reader can anticipate what will happen. Suspense mounts as they choose clothing and have lunch. After selecting a pair of red sneakers, Sarah discovers she's left Abigail behind. Sarah runs back and finds that Abigail is, indeed, in the same spot, but then Sarah can't find her mother. So she stays put, just as her mother had advised and just as Abigail had done. In a cute twist, it's the doll's presence that brings them all back together. Spare, soft pastel pictures are reassuring yet convey the dizzying activity of a mall.
