I like the illustrations in this book, especially the depictions of babywearing. I also like the descriptions and depictions of Elizabeti cheerfully contributing to her family's work. But I found this book flawed:
1. Most significantly, when Obedi is missing, Elizabeti worries that her parents will think that she doesn't know how to care for a real baby. Why isn't she worried about Obedi's safety instead of (or at least in addition to) what her parents will think of her???
2. I don't like how she...more

A widely-appealing concept--Elizabeti has trouble taking care of her little brother and doing her chores at the same time, and is torn between her love and frustration--meets a specific context--Elizabeti's village and day-to-day life--for a winning, funny, and warm picture book. Absolutely worth reading, and probably a must-have for any older sibling.
I would recommend this book to grades 2-3. This book is about a girl who experiences what it is like to take care of her baby brother. She learned that it was much different and more challenging to look after her baby brother than it is a baby doll. I would read this book to students show them that caring for others has its rewards.

Another charming story about Elizabeti and her family. Obedi is no longer the youngest, and is now Elizabeti's charge, but he's a much bigger handful than her stone, Eva.

This sequel to Elizabeti's Doll is a fun continuation of Elizabeti's family, demonstrating her continued growth and development within her growing family.

Good connection to having a new baby at home and the new responsibilities that could come.
