"Purposeful, but saved from didacticism by the sheer exuberance of the illustrations; the accessible text introduces the idea of traditional two-way communication and demonstrates just how small our world can be." --Kirkus

I wanted a book to read my three year old when my wife went on a business trip to India. I wanted a book that was about India as a real country, not a place of myths and dated stories. I did not just want a big book of facts. Wow, did "Same, Same but Different" deliver! My son loves it when we read about Elliot and Kailash. We can talk about how both boys ride a bus to school and how those buses are different.When my wife came home, she could sit with him and talk about how the part of India she visited - more urban than the book's setting - compared with what the pictures show.
The illustrations are beautiful, and it is a pleasure to read and discuss with my son. If someone in the family is traveling to India, or if you just want a book about a different culture that relies on the real world and not stereotypes or myths, this book is a great choice.
We then created our own ‘class book’ inspired by Same, Same but Different, which highlighted our appreciation of our similarities and differences. I think it could easily be the anchor book for numerous lessons on appreciating diversity! Thank you Ms. Kostecki-Shaw! I can’t wait to read your next books!
Un niño tiene que leer 20 minutos y este libro no llega ni a 10 minutos...
It was interesting to listen to the comments of the children as they looked at the pictures illustrating some of the differences between the places that Elliot and Kailash live. The elephant on the same street as cars, pedestrians and carts especially caught their attention. This book provides a nice way to introduce to children the idea that people in other places are both the same and different as they are.
