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.
