Publishers Description
When her new baby brother arrives, Elizabeti decides she needs a doll that she can care for the way her mother cares for the new baby. After looking around the village, Elizabeti finds the perfect doll to love. She names her Eva. When Mama changes the new babys diaper, Elizabeti changes Evas. When Mama sings to the baby, Elizabeti sings to Eva. And one day when Eva turns up lost, Elizabeti realizes just how much she loves her special doll. For children adjusting to a new sibling, this story is perfect. This book is a splendid celebration of life and the power of a childs imagination.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a favorite  Dec 17, 2008
My 4-year-old niece is a big fan of this book - and so is her mother. The story is heartwarming and universal with a setting that is just unusual enough to make it memorable. Not only is it easy for children to relate to (because so many little ones love their dolls), but after several readings, it's opened up a new world for my niece who asked "why does Elizabeti use a rock instead of a real doll?" You can't beat a book that is well-written, fun to read and opens eyes!
Love the book  May 3, 2008
I bought this book for my little nieces, whom I watch during the week.

They love the book, mostly for personal reasons - I carry the baby, ELIZABETI carries her baby; our baby is Eva, THE DOLL is Eva - but I love the book just because it's a very sweet story.

It has simple enough wording, only a few sentences per two-page spread, that it can be read easily to a young child, only two years or so... and it has a deep enough story that it will be enjoyed by an older child as well.

There's only one part of the book that strikes me as strange, and that's at the very end. Elizabeti's mother thinks to herself that Elizabeti will be a good mother when she grows up... and then we're told that Eva (the doll/rock) thinks so too. The style of the book is so realistic that it's a strange note, because, of course, dolls and rocks don't think. But I can always edit or skip that line, so it's not a problem.
Outstanding book  Sep 27, 2007
The entire Elizabeti series is outstanding. All the characters depicted are gentle, caring, and loving to each other as they go about their daily business. When Mama has a new baby, Elizabeti wants a baby of her own -- and so the rock Eva becomes her baby. The illustrations are very nice and support the text.
Great to prepare for new siblings  Apr 16, 2003
This is such a tender book! It appeals to the youngest, even a two-year old brother learning to adjust to a new baby sister. Mother and son found relief and coping skills in this sweet, simple book.
What a precious book!!  Oct 12, 2002
My 6 year old daughter and I loved the book. I read her the story and then went outside to do last minute yard work. After I was through, I came back in the house. To my surpise, my daughter was sitting on the couch, and in her lap was a rock that was swaddled in a kitchen towel. That was so neat to have her pass up her toy box and find pleasure in a simple thing.
