Reviews - What do customers think about Meet the Barkers: Morgan and Moffat Go to School?

Meet the Barkers  Oct 12, 2006
Tomie Depoalo wrote the book Meet the Bakers. Some of the main characters are Moffat, Mogan, Mom and Ms. Shepard.
First, there were two twins, a brother and sister named Moffat and Morgan. They were getting ready to start kindergarten. Moffat was born first so she was the boss. Then, the kids had to go shopping for school stuff. Next, they go to school. On their first day moffat got a gold star and morgan met a friend Billy. Fourth, they go home and tell their mom how it was. Finally, Moffat meets a friend and morgan got a gold star.Then they went home and told their mom that they loved school.
I liked this book because it reminds me of when I was in kindergarten. I think my brothers would like it because they are in kindergarten.
Tomie's Barker Books  Oct 25, 2005
I like this series of Tomie dePaola books and this is a cute story. I would recommend this for younger students and I would recommend the sequel "A New Barker in the House." Both are very cute and my students loved the the comparison of the twins and how they coped with school.
Another Winner from Tomie dePaola  Aug 4, 2001
Though twins, Morgan and Moffat Barker couldn't be more different. Moffie, the oldest by ten minutes is an over achiever with a real Type A personality, bossy, critical and competitive. Her brother, Morgie, is a laid back, go with the flow kind of guy who likes everyone. So when they start school, it isn't surprising that Moffie racks up the gold stars, shouting answers and always having to be the best, while Morgie, eases into the class. He's not getting any gold stars, but he's making lots of new friends. As the first week progresses, their teacher has a quiet little talk with Moffie, asking her not to shout out all the answers, wait her turn and give others a chance. "Now run along and play with your friends." And that's when it hits Moffie. She's been so busy being the best student, she hasn't made any friends and goes off to find her brother. But, with a little encouragement from each other, the twins soon learn it's possible to have gold stars and friends, too..... Tomie dePaola has done it again, written a simple, charming story with a gentle message that won't be lost on young students. His expressive, humorous and familiar artwork complements the text beautifully and children will delight in watching this lovable pair work their way through school shopping and their first week as new students. Perfect for early readers or as a family read aloud story, Meet the Barkers is hopefully the start of another terrific dePaola series and a picture book your kids will want to read again and again.
It's School Time  Jul 20, 2001
As always, Tomie DePaola does it very well in this book. It is just in time for school and holds the young reader's interest in his own "fascinating way". Our granddaughter, 8 years old loves reading and reading all of DePaola'a books. This one is very special to her - she loves school and loves to read about adventures at school.
