Same, Same but Different by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw


This is a beautifully written and beautifully illustrated picture book.  It is about two pen pals writing to each other.  Elliot, from America, and Kailah, from India, exchange drawings and letters and introduce each other to their worlds.  They learn that their lives are the same, but different.

I really enjoyed it and so did my son.  The pictures are so beautiful and rich that it constantly inspires my son to ask, “What’s that?”  He’s very engaged when we read this book.

We’ve also been working on the concept of, “Same, same but different,” and having a good time with it.  This book promotes goodness and kindness and reiterates the fact that we really are a lot alike.

Nothing at all to edit or censor when reading to my 26 month old.  It is an easy and lovely book to read and enjoy.
