Full-Text Reviews
Booklist (October 1, 2011 (Online))
Preschool-Grade 1. Elliot, who lives in America, and Kailash, who lives in India, are pen pals exchanging details about their lives through the pictures they draw for each other. By sharing these illustrations and letters, they realize that they have many things in common, like going to school, having pets, and climbing trees. But some things are different, like their alphabets. The repeated phrase “same, same but different” is included in every exchange the boys share. This story, which celebrates similarities and differences, was inspired by the author’s own experiences as a teacher in Nepal, where she arranged a pen-pal program with students in the U.S. The vibrant acrylic, crayon, pencil, and collage illustrations exaggerate shapes to pleasant, semicomic effect. Pair this book with Rachel Isadora’s Say Hello! (2010) to help children with cultural awareness.
