Penny and Her Doll

Penny was trying to find a name for her doll. First, Penny looked at her brothers and sisters, but she didn't want to pick those names. Next, she looked at her mom and papa, but she didn't want to pick those names either. Last, she looked in the garden and picked the name, "Rose." Truly, Penny was happy with the name Rose.

My favorite part was when Penny found a name for her new doll. Penny is my favorite character because she is cute. This story relates tom life because I played with my doll before. Looking at all of the pictures helped me to understand the story.

I think others should read this story because it has a nice ending. It can also be silly, funny, and cute.
