Horace and Morris Say Cheese (which makes Dolores sneeze!) by James Howe
Mice Horace, Morris, and Dolores love to eat cheese and live in a world where cheesy foods fill the menus of every local resturant and household pantry. Dolores loved swiss cheese, string cheese, blue cheese, and waterloo too, until one day she awakes to find itchy spots covering her small frame. After a thorough examination by Dr. Ricotta, Dolores is told that she can no longer eat all those yummy cheeses! Whoever heard of a mouse ALLERGIC to cheese?? In this creative story Dolores learns the challenges of establishing new eating habits and the excitement of discovering unknown foods she enjoys! Horace and Morris Say Cheese subtly introduces young readers to creative strategies on how to handle food allergies along with ways to encourage classmates who may be allergic to someone else’s favorite food! Amusing and fun, this new book is great for children ages 3 & up and would make an excellent selection for both teachers and childcare providers interested in encouraging classroom awareness!
