While Mama and Penny are in the garden, a package arrives. Gram sent Penny a new doll. Penny loves her right away, but everyone needs a name, and her doll doesn't have one. Who will she be?
This sweet story about a girl, a doll, and her family, make this a wonderful read aloud for young children, not just developing readers.
Our preteen loved Penny when she was learning to read, and wanted to read this newest title, too. She thought this was "sweet," and even though she predicted the name, she still said "awww," at the end.
This is one of the sweetest Penny books yet. I loved that this was a gift from Gram and that Penny adopted her as a family member right away. The conversation between Mama and Penny in the garden is fun and doesn't joke "down" to young readers.
This easy reader introduces chapters to children learning to read.
This is a short chapter book to give new readers practice. Penny's dilemma about naming her doll is one that kids can relate to.
