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

This book is about differing perspectives when looking at an animal. The book doesn't show the whole picture of the animal, but people see different things. After the animal leaves, the people begin to see the other person's side and perspective. At the end, however, a new dilemma arises when a new animal appears and they disagree on whether it's an anteater or a brachiosaurus. 

 

I think book could open up great conversations about how we see things differently based on our perspectives. We can become fixated on our point of view and forget that people see things differently than we do.

A Bad Case of Stripes
A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

A Bad Case of Stripes is about Camilla Cream. Camilla loves lima beans, but doesn't want to eat them because her peers do not like them. Throughout the book, she gets some crazy symptoms from not eating the lima beans and learns that it is perfectly ok to like what you like and be yourself.

 

This would be a great book for bringing up conversations about our differences in likes and dislikes. I think this would be a great to transition to a writing activity about something that each individual student likes that others might not like, just like Camilla likes lima beans, but others don't.
