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

This is a great book to use with younger grades when learning about perspective and point of view. I would use this book in my classroom by having students discuss what they see as we read the book together and than have them compare answers with other classmates in order to understand perspective.

Ms. Pierson's review on Duck! Rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This book was a very cute way to introduce point of view/perspective to students. I would use the story and make a chart and let students see the different perspectives by listing out what they see on a chart. Maybe doing this before reading the story and pointing out that we see things differently even though neither of them are necessarily wrong.

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs - Jon Scieszka,Lane Smith

The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs

Guided Reading: Level Q

This is the TRUE story of the 3 little pigs. It from the wolf's perspective. We learn that the the wolf is really not a bad guy and does not want to hurt the pigs. I think this is a great time to teach students about perspectives. You never know what someone else is thinking so its nice to know other perspectives of a situation.

The Lorax!
The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss is always a good read! This book is a great example of seeing things from a different perspective. The Lorax is trying to look out for the animals and trees and protect them, while the Once-ler sees how the business is growing and how many people want their products that they are creating using the trees. I think this story would be a great way to show that their are different perspectives and they both could be right in their own ways. For older students they could look at the different perspectives of the characters and create a list of ways that each are correct or incorrect.

The TRUE Story of the 3 Little Pigs!
The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs - Jon Scieszka,Lane Smith

Do you ever wonder what the bad guys are thinking in a story? Well in this version of The Three Little Pigs you get to find out! This is the Big Bad Wolf's side of the story. The big bad wolf only wanted to borrow some sugar for his grandmothers cake. But things become disastrous when he starts sneezing due to a cold! And why waste a perfectly good meal? This is such a fun book that will have kids wondering if they really know the true story of a common fairytale. Not only does this teach kids that there is two sides to every story, but it is also wonderful to teach compare and contrast. An activity I would have students do with this story is to have students compare and contrast the original story to this one. You could also have students write a journal entry on whose side they believe is the real story.
