5.0 out of 5 stars Morris's Adventures Oct. 12 2000
By A Customer
Format:Library Binding
"Morris Goes to School," is a story about a Moose who at first doesn't know how to read or count. At the beginning of the story Morris goes to the "Fish" store to by candy. The clerk tells him he's in the wrong place and sends him to the "Candy" store. When Morris goes to the candy store, the clerk tells him the candy is a penny a piece. Morris counts his money, but counts it wrong. The man asks Morris if he went to school, and Morris said, "no." So the man takes him to school, where he learns how to read and count. Morris then goes to the "candy" store and gives exactly five cents for five gumdrops. This story teaches children that by going to school, you can learn things that you might not have known if you didn't go. It also teaches them, that everyone should have the right to go to school. I recommend this book for everyone. It was always my favorite book, when I was a kid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Morris makes reading fun May 19 2004
By Lee
Couldn't help but put my 2 cents in here. My 3 year old daughter was given this book about a month ago and we've read it at least 5 times a week since.
She has a bookshelf full of fun books (pop-up, little golden books, dr. suess etc) but she chooses this book again and again.
I just noticed this week that if I start a sentance from the book, she can finish it w/o hesitation. We went thru the entire book this way. At age 3, she's saying things from the book like, "they are one for a penny", "how much money do you have"...hearing a 3 year old talk about arithmetic is also amusing. She can almost recite the entire book, just about word for word, and she's only had it a short while. I can certainly see the potential here and I never say no to reading it. She can now spell cat and is working on dog. It really is all about repetition, and this book allows just enough details to keep parents reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One To Remember Nov. 29 1999
By Katie
Format:Audio Cassette
If there is one childhood book that I always loved and will never forget, it is Morris Goes To School. Having a moose that walks, talks, and goes to school is entertaining in itself, but his need-to-learn personality is even more neat. Morris first tries to buy candy at a candy store but first goes to the fish store and then counted his money wrong. Luckily, he got to go to school where he learned the alphabet, the difference between the words "boys" and "girls", how to spell, how to hoof-paint, and how to count. During this time, the children and the teacher had a lot of fun having a moose for a classmate. They sang songs together and played games together. At the end, Morris was able to find the candy store with no problem and buy the candy without trouble. I would recomend this book to any young child beginning to read. It is cute, fun, and educational.

5.0 out of 5 stars Morris- Great Children's Book Nov. 8 2001
By A Customer
This is an excellent book for children to read. Before I started Kindergarten 15 yrs. ago(I'm 20 now), my sister taught me to read this book. She was 7 yrs old and thus was attending school and I wanted to learn to read. This book, taught me a little about ABC's, counting, and what it was like to attend school...except for the moose being there of course! I remember Morris trying to hide but his antlers kept sticking out.LOL! When I finally started Kindergarten, myself and a fellow classmate Becky were the only two students capable of reading large words and regular books. I believe that this was because of the foundation layed out by this book... it made reading fun.I recommend this book and would actually like to get my hands on it if I could!

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ FOR ALL CHILDREN!! Jan. 7 1999
By A Customer
Format:Library Binding
I first read this book as a child. I am now 25 years old. I must say that it is one of the best books that I have ever read. It tells the story of a moose that attends school. Morris the Moose goes through many trials and tribulations during the course of the school day. However, the most important thing that I got out of reading this book is that everyone is different. Children in school tend to be judgemental and hard on anyone who is not "the norm". This book shows that although Morris isn't a "kid" like everyone else, they still accept him and help him with his problems. They all pitch in and make him feel welcome. That is a good message for anyone at ANY age. Truly, a wonderful book!
