Product Details


“A perfect read-aloud that celebrates the joy of embracing differences.”—Booklist

“[A] winsome spin on the spot-the-difference concept while sending, with humor, the missive that diversity and collaboration are to be unequivocally celebrated.”Publishers Weekly

“Young readers will jump at the chance to point out the differences. But those differences are what are celebrated! . . . Subversive and clever, this book challenges readers to change habits of thought.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Using amusing illustrations and simple couplets, Saltzberg celebrates differences. . . . The generous use of white space lets the humorous cartoon illustrations really pop.”School Library Journal
“The art uses plenty of white space to good effect, placing the guileless creatures front and center and allowing viewers to notice variation. Upon not-that-close examination, for example, we see that none of the supposedly matching figures is exactly the same in appearance, behavior, or both, a point that gently underscores the text’s welcome be-yourself message.” —The Horn Book
“Fans of Sandra Boynton’s artwork and humor will love this cheerfully animated tribute to individuality. Penguins, pandas, cows, and a variety of surprise creatures line up against a stark white backdrop for comparison. Each spread features three things that are just alike, and one that is decidedly different. Rabbits and a bicycle? Snails and an alien? Find out how they all fit together in this quirky, good time celebration that stands up for standing out.”Foreword Reviews
