24 Festive Tasks - Guy Fawkes Night Task 1
Rabbit, Run - John Updike

Task 1:  Burn a book in effigy.  Not that anyone of us would do such a thing, but if you HAD to, which book would be the one you’d sacrifice to the flames (gleefully or not)?

 

 

I read the first 3 books of the Rabbit series by John Updike as part of a group project in high school. There was serious talk about holding a celebratory book burning of our books once the project was done because we hated them so much. We didn't end up burning them, but we all agreed they were the worst books we'd ever read for school. If I had to burn a book, I'd throw Rabbit, Run in without a second thought. And then I'd toss in the second and third books with it.

Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

What do you see? This is a cute book that follows an argument about whether a rabbit or a duck is being seen! I would use this book to talk about perspective and how you might see something but a classmate may see something else that could depend on many different things!

Lexile: AD300L

Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

 

Brief Review:

Duck! Rabbit! Is about a conversation between two people who had two different points of view and giving examples of why they thought it was a Duck or a Rabbit.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

Duck! Rabbit! The teacher could have the students look at images and explain what they see in the picture, this engages the student’s imagination in what they think they see.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 5 because its so simple but has two very different points of view and at the end they realize it could be either or depending on how you look at the image.

Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This book is about perspective. There are two people who see two different animals. 

I would use this book to start a discussion about point of view and the different types of point of view within a book. Things such as first, second and third person point of view.

Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

Duck! Rabbit! is a fun book for young readers that uses visual illusions to debate whether the images are a duck or a rabbit. Students have so much fun having conversations about which image they see! An extension activity could be to create a T chart with rabbit on one side and duck on the other side and have students list the reasons why the author sees what he does.
