The Morgan Love Series – A+ Attitude by Stephanie Perry Moore

About the Book    

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.

 A+ Attitude

Morgan is sad and mad at the world because things are not going the way she wants. 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? 

If Morgan got a grade for her attitude and her actions it would be an F. But after her mommy gets really sick and Morgan thinks her mommy is going to die she starts to feel bad about her attitude and realizes how mean she’s been to almost everybody. Though she is having a hard time adjusting to all the new things in her life, especially her new baby brother and stepdad, Derek, Morgan makes up her mind that no matter what is going on, she is going to have an A+ attitude

 Interview with Stephanie Perry Moore

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

I came up with the character Morgan Love because I spend time speaking to elementary students and I found that if they believe in themselves and have a great attitude they are more successful. Thus, I developed a character to teach them that very thing.

Who are your main character(s)?

Miss Morgan Love is the main character and she is spunky, yet sweet. She learns that you have to speak up for what is right. Stand for those need help. And that you have to be grateful for your blessings. She is a charming character that parents would like their child to read about.

Did you have a favorite character(s)? Who and why?

Morgan is my favorite character in this series because she learns to grow better with each tough experience. Every reader can learn something from her sweet character.

Did you have to do quite a bit of research for this book?

Yes, I spent time in elementary schools and teachers helped me make sure my state standards were accurate. Also, church youth leaders helped me get biblical stories that resonate well with this age group.

What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading A+Attitude?

The Morgan Love series is comprised of five YA titles to entertain, encourage, and educate youngsters. The first title is A+ Attitude. I hope this title will bless young readers as it is important to teach them about having a great attitude no matter what life brings. It also has forty-nine bolded face words, cross word puzzles and workbook pages that are targeted for 2nd and 3rd graders.

Book Review

A plus Attitude by Stephanie Perry Moore is a charming book for 7-9 year old girls who will love Morgan Love an active, delightful, spunky and smart young girl. The story stresses the importance of having a positive attitude even when one is disappointed about the circumstances an 8 or 9 year old might face such as divorce, a step- father, a new brother or sister or attending a new school. This story and series is highly recommended as it provides moral lessons that will aid in character development, but engages the concerns and interests of young girls without seeming to be an “educational book”. The educational and entertaining exercises after each chapter help develop vocabulary, English and math skills and will engage the young readers.
