Duck! Rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This is a story of two people looking at the same object and seeing two completely different things. The two people argue about what it is until they convince each other to change their original opinion. This book is funny and it shows that you need compelling evidence with for your argument to be successful. I would use this book in the classroom to have students develop compelling evidence to go along with their arguments of whether it was a duck or a rabbit.

Dear Girl,
Dear Girl, - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Paris Rosenthal,Holly Hatam
Girl Power! I think every girl needs to read this children’s book. What an uplifting and wonderful novel celebrating us females! I can’t begin to express how enlightening and empowering this novel is. I am definitely going to be buying a few copies of this novel and sharing them.
 
This novel is basically made up of an assortment of two-page spread entries which begin with “Dear Girl,” and tell the female reader that they are okay, they are special, they are unique and loved. My heart was bursting after my first reading. I immediately had to reread it as it hit on so many different strings that girls address as they are growing up, that now, on my second time through, I stopped and really enjoyed each and every page of the novel. Girls, it’s okay to cry, it’s okay to be alone, it’s okay to ask all kinds of questions, to say no and it’s okay to dress different. I loved the illustration of the girl; her simple style went well with the novel. I enjoyed the illustrations and I liked how they didn’t overtake the novel’s objective. I
 
really liked the pages that said, “Dear Girl, You won’t be invited to every single party on the planet. (Which is really okay- can you image how exhausting that would be?).” This page hit home with me, this page covers many topics that individuals face with growing up. I can’t tell you how many times as a substitute teacher I have had to deal with issues of girls not being accepted by their peers. It hurts to see this happen but like the other pages in this novel, it tells girls that it is okay. This novel tells girls that it is also okay to find people that are different, people that are not like them. As a parent, these pages speak volumes. This is a wonderful, fantastic children’s book! I highly recommend checking it out and perhaps buying a few copies: one for your own child, one for your teacher or giving one away as we all know, we should empower others.

It's All About Perspective.
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This book turned out to be a wonderful way to show perspective in the classroom. It really drives home the fact that we all see something different, but that does not mean we cannot get along. Students could play the game, “I’m Thinking of Something" and use words that describe shape, color, and size to give clues about the object. Students could also use cardboard boxes to come up with something that they see.

Eagerly Awaited Union
Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come True - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Brigette Barrager

Adorable sequel to Uni The Unicorn. Finally fans get the see Uni and the little girl from the first book get together all because they believe in each other. I was happy to see this continuation of Uni The Unicorn as the first book ended abruptly and without conclusiveness. Getting to see the little blonde hair-girl and Uni together was bittersweet as they saved the dreary skies and magicless unicorn world. Although the story is sweet it is a little too simple and yearns for more substance by the end. The story has so much potential but not unlike the first book it runs out of steam. While I still think this is a good book there are just things as an adult that rub me the wrong way but for child I do not think they would be noticed.

Believing Is Happiness
Uni the Unicorn - Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Uni the unicorn, is unlike other unicorns.  She believes there are such things as little girls even though the other unicorns laugh at her.  Also far away a little girl believes in unicorns, unlike other children.  

 

Just the thought of Uni believing in little girls boosts the cuteness level of the book that already has art that brings innocence to the book that little children will love.

 

Many people have commented on some things that they disliked in other reviews. Two things I agree with is the book ends abruptly and the two main characters don’t meet.  It makes you long for more story.

 

Uni the unicorn is a sweet story and I can happily say there is sequel that recently came out which I will be reviewing. If you have a little girl who loves unicorns or fantasy, I think it will be fairy tale cherished for long time.
