PBD: Picturebooks with Multiple Narrators

Today's Picturebook of the Day review features picturebooks with multiple narrators. Each of these stories are rendered with more than one point of view. I Am the Dog, I Am the Cat; George vs. George; and Come Away from the Water, Shirley all feature two narrators juxtaposed over a particular situation and provide the reader with a set of opposing viewpoints. The well known Voices in the Park extends this concept to feature four different voices each telling their version of a trip to the park. These books are great for introducing the concept of perspective and help students understand there is more than one way to look at things.

More of these books can be found on a booklist on my website at:
