Children's Book review: A + Attitude


       A+ ATTITUDE

By: Stephanie Perry Moore

Written By Karina Brown age 10

ISBN #10 0-8024-2263-2

The Mom's Thoughts

Morgan is sad and mad at the world because things are not going the way she wants them to go. Why does my daddy have to leave again to save the country? 

Why do I have to go live with mommy and her new husband? 
Why does my mommy have to have a new baby? Why do I have to go to a new school? Why do I have to make new friends? Why? Why? Why?

Morgan's whole life is about to change, and she has no control over any of it!
The only thing Morgan can change is her attitude, and let me tell you it really needs some adjusting!

Travel along side Morgan as she learns some valuable life lessons on how to react to hard situations in a positive manner.  If Morgan's teacher were to grade her on her attitude, she would get a big fat F for fail!

Though she is having a hard time adjusting to all the new things in her life, especially a new sibling and a step-dad, Morgan makes up her mind that no matter what is happening in her life, she is going to have an A+ attitude.

The Morgan Love Series is a chapter book series written for girls, 7 – 9 years old. The series provides moral lessons that will aid in character development. It will also help young girls develop their vocabulary, english and math skills as they read through the stories and complete the entertaining and educational exercises provided at the end of each chapter and in the back of the book.

I would recommend this book for young girls, I felt the characters were real, engaging and girls could learn some valuable life lessons though Morgan's troubles.

A Girl's Reflection age 10:

   A+ Attitude is a great novel for young adults; Morgan Noelle is facing exciting and frightening challenges. 
For an example her mom broke up with her dad and now is re-marrying someone Morgan doesn’t like very much.

Will her life end up like Cinderella’s? 

 To add to Morgan’s stress she is starting second grade in a brand new school with weird classmates. Morgan learns that she has to grow her faith in Jesus and get her attitude back on track.

 I would recommend this book for ages 8-9 as it deals with some pretty heavy issues. It is an easy to read book with understandable language.

The book includes word searches and a section with a letter to Morgan’s dad; it also includes vocabulary words which can help children learn new words the meanings as well as parts of speech. 
So not only do you get a fun book to read but parents will like that their children are learning something as well. 

We received this book free of charge from PM Newsroom (Moody Publishers) in exchange for our honest opinion.
Thank you, Moody Publishers!
