Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld

"Hey, look! A duck!"
"That's not a duck."

Rosenthal and Lichtenheld's best-selling picture book is a clever way to teach kids about seeing things differently.

The narrative is set up as a debate between readers regarding what they see on the page.

While one viewer thinks the image is surely a duck ("See, there's his bill"), on the next page it's easy to see why the other viewer thinks it's a rabbit ("What are you talking about? Those are ears, silly").

The back-and-forth dialogue is silly and enjoyable for early readers as they join in on the debate as they follow along.

Fun and smart.
