In this IRA Notable Book for a Global Society, Graciela overcomes her disappointment at not receiving the birthday present Papi promised to send by thinking of what Papi might need from her. Graciela lives in a country south of the United States, and Papi works on a farm in California. Though he can't be with her to celebrate her seventh birthday, he has promised to send her a special birthday present tied in red string. On the front of the package will be her name: Garciela Maria Reyes Rivera. Each day Graciela checks the mail, and each day she finds no present. Graciela is angry and disappointed. But then she has a thought: maybe Papi could use a gift himself. Karen Stanton's touching story about a child's selfless act of love is beautifully illustrated by Ren\u00e9 King Moreno.
