In Spanish. A young Tanzanian girl finds a special doll, and realizes how much she loves the doll when she almost loses her.

Upon the arrival of her new baby brother, Elizabeti decides she needs a doll she can care for the way her mother cares for the new baby. After looking around her village, Elizabeti finds the perfect doll to love, and names her Eva.

When Mama changes the new baby's diaper, Elizabeti changes Eva. 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.

Translated from Elizabeti's Doll, La mu eca de Elizabeti is a universal tale of love and tenderness that will touch readers of all ages.
