Have You Ever Seen a Duck in a Raincoat? by Etta Kaner

Kaner, Etta Have You Ever Seen a Duck in a Raincoat? illustrated by Jeff Szuc, 32 pgs. Kids Can Press, 2009. PICTURE BOOK. $14.95. In this brightly illustrated book, comparisons are made between what people wear and what animals wear...or rather, what animals don't wear. Kids will be engrossed as they learn about various animal adaptations and will love seeing the silly illustrations of animals dressed up in different clothing items. This is a fun way to teach kids about animal characteristics and adaptations. Also included is a tic-tac-toe game that kids can follow up with at the end of reading. EL-ESSENTIAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
