Book Journal - Day 3

It was recess at school and Darcy was playing with her friends Mary and Miss Abernathy. Darcy told her friends about Angela with real yellow hair and eyes that could open and close.

I think it's short because I didn't ask how many pages I was supposed to read.

Book Journal - Day 2

Mrs. Primrose was actually Darcy's mother, not her aunt. I was confused.
When Darcy was skipping coming home she put her doll, Angela, down and kept on skipping. Then she went back where she had put her doll down and Angela was gone! So she looked and looked until it was dark. She thought that Angela had dissappeared. She heard her mother Mrs. Primrose calling her to wash her hands for supper. So she went home to wash her hands for dinner. It was chicken and ice cream! She told her mom about what happened to Angela. She told her that she had real yellow hair and eyes that can open and close. Then she told her dad about Angela with the real yellow hair and eyes that can open and close. So the next afternoon, her dad went to find a doll that looked just like Angela. All afternoon. Darcy looked for Angela too, everywhere she remembered she went with her. Then Darcy's aunt, Aunt Tabby, got Darcy a present. That present turned out to be a doll too! Then, Darcy told Aunt Tabby about Angela, crying with tears.

I think it was sad that Darcy lost Angela, but then she got another doll which was the nice part. I think that it was good that Darcy's mother Mrs. Primrose got Darcy a doll named Angela and a gold string.

The Most Wonderful Doll in the World

"The Most Wonderful Doll in the World" by Phyllis McGinley

Book Journal:

There once was a little girl named Dulcy. One day Dulcy's aunt, Mrs. Primrose got Dulcy a present. It was a doll and a gold string for Dulcy's collection. Her name is Angela said Mrs. Primrose. Thank you, thank you, Aunt Primrose. Then Darcy had to go to the church and brought her present with her.
I think this is a good story and if anyone reads it they will love it. I think her doll collection was nice to put in the story. If I had a collection, I would collect rocks. I would get the rocks from the dirt and from Yosemite.
