Same, Same But Different by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw

The southeast Asia saying "Same, same but different" is often used when describing two different cultures. Two boys, Elliot in America and Kailash in India, discover through a series of letters and drawings how their worlds are the SAME and how they are DIFFERENT but still SIMILAR! From the types of trees they climb to the large amount of traffic to the school bus they take to school (my personal favorite). And at the end, both boys sleep, with the pictures from their "pen pal" hanging on their walls! A FABULOUS look at how our world parallel's others even on the other side of the world. Inspired by her own experiences of a friend living in Nepal, the author/illustrators travels in India and Thailand, and her father's travels around the world.
