2009 Award
Duck! Rabbit!
(by Amy Krouse Rosenthal & Tom Lichtenheld, Chronicle $16.99 Score:)

Good fun here with an optical illusion that goes from duck to rabbitódepending on how you look at it. This is both a funny idea and one that also introduces a big idea about the eye of the beholder. It starts out as a funny little argument and ends on the possibility that otherís point of view just might be true. A big idea! 3 & up.
