Susie | 1 comments My mother gave us this book when my children were small, maybe 10 years ago. It is the story of how everyday things got their names. A man named "Carr" was in charge of naming everything. A young boy came to town and challenged him. The kicker was finding the word "LOVE." I LOVED this book and my kids still remember bits of it. Anyone? I seem to remember that it had a light blue cover and beautiful illustrations. . . . Thanks!

Susie, are you still looking for this book? Any idea if it was American, British, or other?
