Her best friend is Joey Deckler, whom she has known since preschool.
Morgan has many pets: fish, Avatar and Arnesto; dogs, Tucker and Bella; and cats, Sylvester and Spooky. She said her favorite animal is a Labrador dog. When Morgan grows up, she wants to be an artist. She especially loves to draw. In her free time, she likes making crafts and jumping on her trampoline. Her favorite color is pink and favorite food is spaghetti. Morgan’s favorite movie is The Lightning Thief. For books, she likes anything written by Roald Dahl, especially “The Magic Finger.” She likes to play soccer, and her favorite subject in school is math. This summer, the family will be camping, hiking and backpacking. They recently hiked the Mandell Trail and camped. They had a great time.
When asked if she had any advice for other kids about reading, Morgan said to work hard and be creative. After being told she was the Reader of the Week, Morgan said, “I was very excited.” Congratulations, Morgan!
