From a village in Tanzania to anywhere else in the world feelings are the same and when Elizabeti's mother has a new baby and needs to spend a whole lot of her time caring for that baby, Elizabeti decides to find her own baby to take care of. She does not have a doll so she tries out a stick with too many poky parts and then settles on a smooth, round rock which she lovingly names Eva. Whatever Mama has to do with her baby, Elizabeti mirrors with her own little one though Elizabeti happily finds that when Mama's baby has a very dirty bottom, Eva is still clean and fresh! No changing required! This is a wonderful journey into the heart of a young child and into the culture of her world with its kanga for carrying and cooking hut. A beautiful doorway for children to connect to others who are perceived as "different" but who share the same universal heart. 32 pages Ages 4-8
