Overview

Morrie doesn't like children and Mrs. Aster doesn't like lizards. Or so they think. "A Story for Morrie," tells the story of a bearded dragon whose home is a tank in a third-grade classroom. He gets tired of being pestered by the children in the class and looks forward to the solitude of the nights and weekends when nobody bothers him. That is, until summer comes and the kids go on break, leaving Morrie all alone. Morrie is feeling rather abandoned when Mrs. Aster shows up. She's teaching night school and agreed to care for the lizard over the summer. At first, she's terribly fearful of the creature, but develops an affection for him when she learns they have something in common.

I owned a dragon & loved this story. My lizard had a personality like Morrie does in the story. They are nice pets & I like when classrooms have pets. Good read

What a cute story. A bit of an abrupt ending (hemce the 4), but still a really good thing to read with the little kiddies.

It was a very short story but cute. I liked the fact that it showed that animals have feelings too.

A story for Morrie is a fun book to read it is short but it has lots of interesting things in it. I am not an editor or author,but this book is a great read aloud to children.

Cute and touching although it is very short. I recomend this book for early chapter book readers. Or others who are fond of short books. I say that ages 5-10 would enjoy this book most. I enjoyed it while it lasted and im eleven.
