Lets Talk About Books 7/8/14

Hello! Once again I am linking up with Deanna Jump for her fabulous We Love Books linky! Every week I look forward to sharing one of my favorite children's books, and I love learning about new titles from so many wonderful teachers!
The book I am sharing about today is one that I've shared with a different linky party before. However,I feel like I need to share it once more just in case you haven't heard of it!

The story I am sharing today is...

http://www.amazon.com/Duck-Rabbit-Amy-Krouse-Rosenthal/dp/0811868656/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1404839557&sr=8-1&keywords=duck!+rabbit!

Seriously, if you do not have this book, order it right now. I mean look at the cover. Is it a duck or a rabbit? Ahhhh I still don't know!!!

It really could be either. This story sets up a playful banter between two unseen characters. They debate whether the creature is a duck or a rabbit.

The story is a perfect addition for your reading/writing workshop mentor texts. I use the story to talk about perspective, opinion and persuasion.  You'll be amazed at what even the littlest of minds can come up with and debate about. My class is always split about 50/50.

So what do you think?? Is it a duck? Or is it a rabbit?
