    If I could change one thing about the story so far, I would not have Rubin die. I would change this because it was really gross and scary. I didn't like this part and wish that it wasn't in the story.

    At first, I thought that the title did not make sense at all. But, the book was so good, I read ahed and I finished the story. I then figured out what the title, "Where the Red Fern Grows" meant. As it turns out, a red fern grew over the graves of Old Dan and Little Ann. I liked this title, and I wouldn't change it because it fits the book very well.

    I am most like the boy in the story Where the Red Fern Grows because he really wants two dogs that he can hunt with. When I was in 2nd grade,I really wanted a cat but I couldn't have one unless I earned it. THe boy in the story needs to work hard and earnmoney to get his dogs. That is how I am most like The boy in the story, Where the Red Fern Grows.
