Sky (my 7 year old daughter) and I read Morris Has a Cold as part of her K12 literature and comprehension class. She loved it, and we read it probably five times yesterday. She especially liked the dialogue where Boris is attempting to get Morris to eat some soup. The best part was that she could read it on her own.
Morris the moose gets a cold and his friend Boris attempts to help him. Unfortunately Morris is not the brightest and he gets confused about pretty much everything. For example, when Boris asks to feel his forehead Morris replies that he does not have four heads. Boris tries to point out that it is called a forehead but Morris says no that is my one head.
Throughout the entire story Boris shows an incredible amount of patience in dealing with Morris. Though he does get angry at times Boris never gives up on helping his friend.
This book was very funny and I imagine we will be reading it another 4 or 5 times tomorrow.
