Graciela lives in a country south of the United States, and Papi works on a farm in California. Though he cant 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 Stantons touching story about a childs selfless act of love is beautifully illustrated by René King Moreno.
