    The Old Woman Who Named Things is one of the sweetest books I have ever read! It is a personal favorite of mine and my second grade students. Cynthia Rylant's words are beautiful! Everyone should read this book!

    A great book about friendship

    My daughter has loved this book since she was about two years old. The story is sweet and funny while teaching kids about friendship, caring, loneliness and sharing. Very to easy to read over and over...which we do.

    There was an old woman who loved to name things.She named her house,car,chair and bed.Once she found a shy brown dog.She loved the dog very much. One day the did not come. The old woman was unhappy and went in the car to go looking for it. What will happen to the puppy? Read to find out. The author's purpose is that friends are very important. I really loved this book. I hope you like it too.

    Old Woman Who Named Things

    The Old woman who named things is about an old woman. She had no friends she could call by name she had out lived all of them. So she named things she could not out live. So she called her old car Betsy. Her chair she sat in every morning Fred. her house that stood sraight for over a 100 years Franklin. Last but not least her bed she slept in every night Roxanne. One day when she was washing off Betsy she saw a shy-brown dog by her gate. she got some food for the puppy and told it to go home. and went on for months.Then a few days th puppy didn't come. I think Cynthia Rylant, the author, wanted to tell her readers that even though new she can out live the puppy, she can still name the puppy. Also because she loves the puppy very much. i like the book because Cynthia Rylant made the ok quite funny. Also I like it because it was well written. Also the pitures went with the book perfectly. I wanted to know what would happen to the puppy, so I continued to read.

    I love this book!

    This is a very sweet story which my kids in class love to have read to them. There is a little twist at the end that some students figure out. I use it for helping students learn how to make predictions.
