    • While I think the subject matter of this book is a good topic, the adults in this story are just awful - from the parents to the teacher. As a teacher, this teacher does not inspire Maggie to learn in a positive way, nor do her parents, nor her father's secretary.


    • A silly, but amusing little book about a third-grade girl's battle to learn cursive. I'm reviewing it only because it really sticks out in my memory, because this book influenced my own handwriting. So, in the book, Maggie's mother is telling her how when she was in college, all the girls she knew dotted their i's with circles because they thought it was artistic. At the end of the book, Maggie starts doing this too. This idea stuck with me for some reason, and when i was thirteen I spent an ent [...]


    • This book was a little tricky for my kids because they have to be able to read cursive to read the book, and by the time they can read cursive it's below their reading level.





    • Wow. This book is so stupid. As a teacher I found it completely ridiculous. It was written in 1990 but felt like something from the 50s. The thought of a girl being sent to the principal for not writing in cursive is so dumb, even in the 90s. (At least where I grew up. If anyone did grow up in a school like that, I feel sad for you.) Maggie decides (for no good reason) that she doesn't want to learn cursive. The teacher concocts this stupid plan to get her to want to read cursive. I can't imagin [...]


    • I grew up reading Beverly Cleary's books both at home and school, and loved most of the characters in the Henry and Ramona series. The schools depicted were true to the time of publication and I could relate to the kids' thoughts and feelings.Not so Muggie Maggie. For 1990, the school sounded a lot like the 1960s--we stopped "saluting the flag" way back about 1970, unless they've started again. The teacher's emphasis on being "good citizens" was old hat thirty years ago, and makes the book feel [...]



    • this is a great book about cursive and how a girl did not like cursive but in the end reallised that cursive is important and fun.


    • What I thought about the book Muggie Maggie is that it was a really good book. I also liked the fact that Maggie's teacher Mrs. Leeper helped get Maggie to realize that she could read cursive only if she went and set her mind to it. I also liked the fact that Maggie's teacher Mrs. Leeper went and made maggie go to the principal and have some talks with him by writing secret notes about her student to try to get his help in figuring out why she was being so stubborn in not wanting to read or writ [...]




    • I love this book! I read it in 3rd grade and loved it! I love Maggie and the cute little story Beverly Cleary tells about cursive and a girl who is stubborn about not writing cursive.






    • I grew up reading Beverly Clearly books and loved them but I just did not enjoy this book. At least it was a super quick read otherwise I probably woukdnt have kept going.


    • This was a fun look at the ornery mind of a third grader and the lengths that a good teacher will go in order to move that mind to accept a new concept in her education. I appreciated this one because i am sad to see the teaching of cursive writing going by the wayside.


    • This book was so good. I loved how Maggie H-A-T-E-D hated cursive. I myself am really looking forward to cursive, though. Maggie had a dog, and I thought it was such a sweetie pie. 3 SMILIES! =) =) =)


    • Muggie Maggie, by Beverly Cleary. Published in 1991, by HarperCollins.I actually forgot that we read this book before Christmastime, which I think says a lot about the book itself. We were waiting for the next Henry Huggins books, so we decided to read this one-book Beverly Cleary, which we already had in our library. It was forgettable.Now, I have really enjoyed Beverly Cleary. Our family has been enjoying her at bedtime for months. We really enjoyed Ramona Quimby, and are moderately enjoying H [...]



    • Muggie Maggie is about a girl that is starting third grade and the teacher informs the class that they will be starting cursive. Maggie thinks this is a horrible idea and doensn't want to do it. She puts off writing cursive while all her classmates are writing it. Maggie gets in trouble by her teacher. The teacher, Mrs. Leeper, has a conference with Maggie's mother about her not writing cursive. Maggie still refuses to write cursive after her parents are mad at her and take the computer away fro [...]


    • Maggie Schultz's third grade classmates are excited about learning cursive, but Maggie decides that she doesn’t want to have any part of it. The first day, her teacher compares cursive writing to a rollercoaster. While the other students are practicing loops and curves, Maggie draws rollercoasters all over her paper. At home, she studies her parents' handwriting. They certainly don't form their letters the way they're supposed to. When Maggie's class begins to write individual letters, Maggie [...]


    • Muggie Maggie, written by Beverly Cleary tells the story of a young girl named Maggie who beginning to learn cursive. Maggie is avoiding the correct ways of writing cursive because she wants her writing to look just like her parents, which is very sloppy. The teacher is getting very mad at Maggie for not following directions and writing neat. Maggie knows how to read cursive, which means she knows how to write but is pretending she doesn’t. When Maggie discovers the notes are about her she rea [...]


    • This is one of those simple classics that takes me back to my childhood. Beverly Cleary remains one of my all-time favorite authors EVER because she simply gets how children think. I adored her books when I was growing up, and I enjoy them just as much now as I did back then. Muggie Maggie holds a particularly dear spot in my heart because I am one of the few old-fashioned souls who simply loves cursive handwriting. I will never part with it. (Mainly because my cursive looks about ten thousand t [...]


    • This book has been on my classroom bookshelf for some time. I am not certain where it came from. It is well-loved (falling apart). I am a fan of Beverly Cleary, although it wasn't until just now that I read this.As a teacher, this is a book that is cute and sappy. Perseverance is always a trait we teachers embrace. Maggie Schultz has determination that I long for students to have.Maggie is obstinate when it comes to learning cursive writing. She is adamant that will not learn it. This, of course [...]


    • Cute Beverly Cleary story! I appreciate the argument for learning cursive. I find it disheartening that Common Core has done away with cursive. Of course children should learning keyboarding, but not at the expense of cursive. They need both.


    • This is not the best of Beverly Cleary. The story is very slight and feels like it should be part of a larger book. It is about a girl named Maggie who doesn't want to learn cursive writing. At first (way too quickly, I thought), she is sent to a psychologist, but isn't really helped with her "problem." Then her teacher starts sending Maggie as a messenger to other teachers with notes in cursive. Maggie peeks at the notes (which the teacher expects her to do.) She is finally motivated to learn c [...]
