Peggy Gifford’s preteen procrastinator is back in Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Practicing the Piano.

Author: Peggy Gifford

Moxy Maxwell’s piano recital is only hours away and she has a long list of things she needs to do before the show. She needs to drink her Green Grass Power Shake for upper body strength, make sure her mother is back from Africa, prepare her costume and try on her make-up, and have a big dress rehearsal. But Moxy forgot one important thing to add to her list—practice the piano!


Practicing is Not a Priority

Moxy’s piano teacher is worried that she won’t stop playing the song when it ends, since Moxy thinks the song is far too short. Moxy’s mother just returned from a sleepless trip to Africa to bring home her spunky twin sister home after an accidental fall. Even though she’s exhausted, it’s up to her to make Moxy practice. But right now, Moxy has more important things to worry about.


Stage Fright

When the curtain is drawn, and it’s Moxy’s turn to perform the duet with her sister, Pansy, she wonders whether not practicing was such a good idea after all.


The Bottom Line

If you’re the world’s biggest procrastinator, or you’ve ever had stage fright, then you’ll definitely relate to Moxy. Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Practicing the Piano is all about overcoming obstacles, facing fears and learning from your mistakes. The Moxy Maxwell series is super funny. It has lots of pictures, compliments of Moxy’s brother Mark.

    To get the ball rolling, I ate a fern this morning. It wasn't entirely unpalatable, just a little bitter near the end. The aftertaste lingered for a long time though. Your turn.

What does it mean for love to "have" something?  The last two questions are what I want to look into in particular. See, many slogans and catchphrases have become progressive icons in the past few years. Examples:  "Love is Love" "Love has no gender"  "Love has no color" and, yes... "Love has no age"  Now, what does it mean to say that Love is Love? In fancy terms, it's a tautology. This just means that the statement affirms that something is itself. "One is equal to one" would be the saying the exact same thing. So, why is this statement often used to support gay marriage? How is "Love is Love" a reason for homosexual people to be wed?  Also, what does it mean to say that Love does not have a gender, or a color? Does love have something else instead of a gender or color? How can love possess a thing? Quoting Chesterton, "Love means loving the unlovable – or it is no virtue at all." Before I even try to answer your question, can you specify whether you're talking about the release of chemicals in our brains that are responsible for the phenomenon of romantic attraction--love--or the desire to do good to one's neighbor sort of love, or something else?
