Where is Flat Stanley?

Can you guess where I am from the pictures? Sometimes I am hard to find, like Waldo.

Look closer at this picture. What kind of soup do Dutch people eat?

I saw all the names in Dutch like: pompoensoep, kippensoep, tomatensoep, mexicaanse maissoep, groentesoep and erwtensoep.

Type in the Dutch soup names to learn the soup names in English.

For breakfast, Dutch children usually eat bread with cheese or chocolate sprinkles or chocolate spread. They do not eat cereal very often. These are the only cereals to choose from.

Can you see any familiar looking cereal boxes?

Did you guess where Flat Stanley is yet? Yes, he is at the supermarket.

This doesn't look like Kroger, H-E-B or B&B in Sour Lake, Texas. Holland has smaller and different kinds of grocery stores with names like Albert Heijn, Super de Boer, Jumbo and this one called Plus.

In this picture I am with the cheese slicers. All those big orange wheels are Dutch cheese. Dutch people eat a lot of cheese, sometimes for both breakfast and lunch on bread.

These two Plus supermarket helpers took a picture with me and helped me cut the cheese. The lady on the right is not sleeping. She is really good at cutting cheese and laughing at my jokes.
