Same, Same But Different
by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw
pen pals from different continents (United States & India) share
details about their lives and discover many things that are mostly the
same, but slightly different (ie: how they get to school, what their
neighborhood looks like...) The mixed media illustrations are vibrant
and adorable, and they're so full of details that kids will want to look
over them again and again. This is a great book for teaching tolerance
and diversity (and we also use it when teaching compare and contrast.)
|Interest Level: PreSchool - 3rd grade
Here are some sample spreads from inside Same, Same But Different. Aren't the illustrations so adorable. :) And the 'same but different'
messages are really effective, ie: the spread below shows that both kids
go to school, just via a different mode of transport.
