Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bouncy rhythms set the tone for a lively correspondence between two pen pals…As the two boys depict their worlds, music and narration add to the similarities and differences described. Maxwell Glick’s enthusiastic voice and American accent propel listeners as Elliot describes his home and family. Vikas Adam flavors the responses of Kailash not only with an Indian accent but also with curiosity and explanations that encourage cross-cultural understanding. Lyricism, particularly the repeated refrain ‘same, same but different,’ gives a sense of the boys’ building relationship and the similarities that stretch between the miles. This production inspires consideration, conversation, and listening again. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“[Kostecki-Shaw] immerses readers in her heroes’ worlds, showing them as confident navigators of even the busiest landscapes. On every page, readers will sense they’re in the company of a generous, open-minded talent.” Publishers Weekly
“Kostecki-Shaw presents a meaningful message of inclusivity in this engaging title.” School Library Journal
“Young readers will close the book longing to have a friend from another place; for schools with global partnerships, this will be a go-to book for introducing these projects to classrooms.” Horn Book magazine
“There is considerable usage potential here, from art projects to classroom community projects to diversity awareness projects…There’s also plenty of pleasure to be found just in sharing the thoughtful story.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“The accessible text introduces the idea of traditional two-way communication and demonstrates just how small our world can be.” Kirkus Reviews
