Betsy rubbed her eyes and looked at the streamers. "It is my birthday," she said. Betsy opened a present; it was a new doll. The doll was very pretty.
"Its name is Grace," said Betsy.
"That's a pretty name," said Mom.
Betsy got a new dollhouse and a doll and some M&Ms. That is what Betsy got.
"Now let's go to the park."
Betsy named her doll Grace because her friend was named Grace.
