“While Penny is in the garden smelling flowers, the mailman delivers a new doll from Gram. What should Penny name her? She tries names that she knows and names based on what she is wearing, but nothing seems right. Perhaps the answer is right under her nose!”
-- Lisa Fabiano, Wellesley Books, Wellesley, MA


Description

When Penny comes home from school, she is ready to sing her song. But the babies are sleeping, and Mama and Papa are worried that Penny will wake them up. Oh, but it is a good song, a really wonderful song . . . and Penny wants more than anything to sing it.

What do you think will happen?
