CB - Markel, Gracias Rosa
Terra Experience Collection
Kate is not so sure about her new babysitter, Rosa, who is from Guatemala, speaks Spanish and only a little English. Then Rosa gives Kate a soft cloth doll with dark hair in one long braid just like Rosa and life is better. Katita (little Kate) learns a little Spanish, some food and customs from Guatemala and about Rosa's family including a daughter left in Guatemala. When Rosa returns to Guatemala, Kate gives her a favored doll to take to her daughter. Kate keeps the soft dark-hair doll, good memories, and exchanges letters with Rosa.
