My 6 year old daughter and I loved the book.
Krista Harmier
The story is heartwarming and universal with a setting that is just unusual enough to make it memorable.
A. Potts
This book is what literature should be for adults and kids.

Format: Hardcover
The power of love is gently told in this tale of a little Tanzanian girl and her doll, Eva, who is a rock. My four-year-old grand-daughter, an American child living in rural Idaho, identified immediately with Elizabeti, telling me that, "It's okay if her doll is a rock, Gramma. That's okay." She loves this story, and so do I. As a children's librarian in a public library, I use it often in story times. It's an excellent choice for reading aloud. Also, it has been selected as a finalist in the North Carolina Children's Book Award Program 2000. Obviously, I highly recommend this book!

As the mother of two young girls, I have read hundreds of picture books. "Elizabeti's Doll" is, in my opinion, a rarity: a book for children whose characters and plot are unique, compelling and satisfying, all within a handful of words on a few pages. This book is what literature should be for adults and kids.
Elizabeti is a completely endearing character, who reminds adults and children that childhood has its special joys, and high among those is the ability to involve the entire family in a fantasy world of the child's own making. Elizabeti turns a rock into the family's new baby, whom everyone loves and cherishes right along with her. It's a story about what is best in all of us.

Elizabeti's Doll is the imagination of children. It is a book that a child will want to read over and over again. Be sure to find this one at your bookstore.

Format: Paperback
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.

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!

Format: Paperback
This book is an awsome representation of how children use materials available to create their own reality. Elizabeti's Doll is a realistic example of the way young children utilize what is available to them in their environment to enhance and expand on their learning experiences.
This is a very touching tale, perfect for children.
