Review:
In this lighthearted book set in an African village, we again meet the charming protagonist of Elizabeti’s Doll. Elizabeti’s responsibilities are growing. Mother must now take care of the newborn, so the job of caring for her year-old brother, Obedi, falls to Elizabeti. The boy pulls her hair, spills the water she carries in a jug on her head and, in general is far more difficult than her rock doll.
