֍Gracias Rosa, Michelle Markel, Diane Paterson (Illustrations) (1995), 32 pp., 12 oz --- [ages 5-10, reading grades 1-4]  [Refugee and Immigrant Experiences]  in English with some Spanish words in text and a glossary for these words.

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.
