This book holds the argument between two people who have different perspectives. One swears the animal in question is a duck, while the other says it's a rabbit, and they go from page to page giving reasons for their opinion.

A good book for children to learn to look at things from different views. Is it a duck or is it a rabbit? It also helps kids to learn when to give up on an argument cause both might be right. ( )

Good for read-aloud.
Simple text for early primary readers. ( )

This is a fun, silly book about point-of-view. The left hand sees a duck while the right hand sees a rabbit. They both argue their sides until they scare it away and can't exactly remember what they saw. This book reminds of the classic "is it a face or a vase" picture, or more recently the white and gold dress vs. the blue and black dress, or the laurel/yanni sound bite. I was told about an experiment in high school where a teacher would sit two students down across from each other and have them close their eyes. The teacher would set a globe in front of them and have them open their eyes. One student would say the globe is red and the other would say it's white. They'd argue until one decided to see things from the other's perspective and notice that the globe was in fact two different colors but one color from a certain view point. I always appreciate a story that presents multiple views and a healthy debate. The only thing I disagree with is that I'm pretty sure rabbits don't dip their ears in water to cool off. I would recommend this book to show a healthy debate for children. Always provide real examples. ( )
