Morris the Moose (I Can Read)

Author(s): B. Wiseman

Learning to Read

Morris meets a cow and declares that the cow is a funny looking moose, insisting, despite the cow’s protests, that the cow must be a moose because she “has four legs and things on her head.” When Morris and the cow approach a deer for help, the deer insists that they are all deer, and when the three of them ask a horse to assist, the horse claims they are all horses. It is not until the animals see their joint reflections in the water that they conclude that they are not all the same.

Why does Morris believe that the cow is a moose? Does Morris have good reasons for believing this? If you have good reasons for believing something, do you know it? What makes a moose a moose? A cow a cow? Is there something essential that makes us what we are? If so, what is it?
