Have You Ever Seen a Duck in a Raincoat?
Have You Ever Seen a Duck in a Raincoat? compares human clothing, footwear and headgear with the equivalent animal adaptations. Have you ever seen a lobster in a helmet? No? That's because lobsters don't need helmets because they have a hard shell to protect their heads and bodies.The animal tic-tac-toe activity at the end of the book will provide hours of educational enjoyment. Each informational picture book in the Have You Ever Seen series uses lighthearted human-animal comparisons to teach primary-level children about animals.

Cute book that the kids in my classroom love to read over and over. The book was in good shape and inexpensive. It shipped quickly.
I think this is a wonderful children's book that is truly successful at being both fun and educational. The charming illustrations of different animals such as a cheetah, a caribou, or a lobster pop with vivid colour and personality, while the little boy and girl characters, who investigate the fascinating aspects of each animal, vibrantly express children's natural curiosity and fascination. Exploring this book is a great way to fuel the curiosity and fascination in any child, as the book's pages pose amusing yet interesting questions and then proceed to explain, in fun, approachable terms, such curious facts as a cheetah's ability to run in long strides or an eagle's way of shading its eyes from the sun. I have heard that children benefit from having their minds stimulated at an early age because this leads to the formation of neural pathways - "learning connections" - which promote intellectual growth. This book furnishes this stimulation remarkably well and is fun to boot! :)
I really like this unique approach to teaching kids about animals. It's a nice change-up, plus the colorful illustration of the silly questions is a great hook.
