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.
