'Elizabeti had a new baby brother named Obedi. Elizabeti watched Mama take care of him and she wanted to care for her own baby.
She didn't have a doll, so she went outside and picked up a stick. She tried to hug it, but it poked her and she dropped it on the ground.
Then Elizabeti picked up a rock. It was just the right size to hold and it didn't poke Elizabeti when she hugged it. She kissed the rock and named it Eva.'
