WHO MOVED MY CHEESE? for Kids – An A-Mazing Way to change and win!
In May 2003 Spencer John along with Christian Johnson wrote Who moved my cheese? for kids. Dr Johnson adapted his original story for the younger audience in picture book format so that young children would view change as a positive thing that can lead to new opportunities in life.
WHO MOVED MY CHEESE? for Kids – Brief Synopsis
I believe this addition to the original version carries as much weight if not more, given our young are the future and can be impressed from an early age on how to live their lives without the fear of change.
The junior readers enjoy following the story of the four little characters, Sniff, Scurry, Hem and Haw, who make their way through a maze looking for the “Magical Cheese” that makes them happy.
And once they find the Cheese, it seems like it will last forever-until one morning everything changes. Who moved their Cheese? Will it come back? Or will they have to look for different Cheese, venturing onto strange paths, around corners they’ve never explored?
As children follow these friends through the maze of change, they can try to figure out which character they’re most like-or which they most admire-and what their own Magical Cheese might be.
