The Same But Different Too (Hardcover)
“Charming pairs of human and animal characters celebrate their similarities and differences...Entertaining.”
I am me, you are you.
We’re the same, but different too.
There’s something about each of us that makes us special. But while everyone is unique, we all have many things in common as well. Explore the ways that we are all the same but different, too, in this joyful and simple celebration of individuality and camaraderie. Filled with children and their animal friends, this rhyming text illuminates the wonderfully different and similar things that make us who we are.

Drawn in pencil and digitally colored, the artwork is sure to spark conversations about the kids, the animals, and the situations shown. A fanciful, gently amusing concept book.
The layout lends a jaunty visual rhythm, and pencil and digitally colored images offer an elegant, easygoing vibe. The wrap-up is a lovely note of unity: everyone gathers for a story, and then heads to the ultimate bunk bed—portrayed in a vertical spread—for a collective lights out.
