This is a darling story! Morris wants to be himself and make friends at school-a hard task sometimes. Baldacchino gives a charming solution that is entirely believable.

He was a boy and I never knew that because he looked like a girl. Why did her wear a dress? Fatima

Don't miss Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress! This title beautifully examines gender sterotypes and roles, while telling an inspiring story of Morris and his tangerine dress. Great for classroom read alouds on bullying, individuality, and other social-emotional topics.
