Same, Same but Different

     Do children still have pen pals?  Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw's Same, Same but Different makes a wonderful case for restarting the trend!

     Elliot lives in the U.S., and he starts trading notes & drawings with Kailash, who lives in India.  We get to see both of their worlds--how different they are, and how very much the same.  Kostecki-Shaw's art--a combination of drawing, painting & collage--draws us beautifully into each child's world.  You may end up wanting a pen pal of your very own!
