   Beautiful book about the people who live in India, not its myths and legends - Strongly Recommended
India is not a myth after reading this book. When my wife went on a business trip to India, I wanted to read a book to my three year old. I was looking for a book that was about India as a real country, not a place of myths and stories. I wanted a big book of facts. Same but different! My son loves reading about the two men. When my wife came home, she could sit with him and talk about what she saw in India compared to what the pictures show. It is a pleasure to read and discuss the illustrations with my son. This book is a great choice if you want a book about a different culture that relies on the real world and not stereotypes or myths, or if you just want a book about a different culture.

   Phenomenal Book
The book shows children how the two friends are very different. It's a great way to celebrate our relationships. Definitely worth the read. Well written, beautiful, fun, and has a great flow.
   No muy bueno
It doesn't give a lot of information about Indian customs for children to learn, it's like a kindergarten book.
   Great book
The book was read as an introduction to a 3 rd grade art project. The message that was conveyed to the children was that we all come from different countries and cultures, but we can respect our differences, and that we are basically the same. I bought the book so my grandson and I could keep reading.
   Inspiring children’s book. Promote racial and ethnic harmony.
I decided to keep this copy for my own collection of children's books because I bought it for my little free library. The images and illustrations are engaging. The text and messages are very touching. We need that book right now. Thanks to the author for her insightful words during difficult times!
   I want Sequels!
This is a wonderful book. I was happy that the author chose a gender neutral name so my daughter could relate to the characters in the book, the artwork and the story is lovely. I could see a sequel with the same patterning but different family types in other countries, where children can learn about other cultures. It's uplifting. The purchase is worth it.
   Love this story
My son likes the book. There is a great quick story illustrated. He likes to point out the different animals and things in the book, but does the little chant the same.
   Absolute MUST HAVE for Diversity Themed Classroom Units!
This book is amazing. I used this book as an anchor in my kindergarten social studies unit. Students wrote to grandparents, received and shared replies, and invited their own parents to share something their family loved to do after reading this book. Our class book was inspired by Same, Same but Different and highlighted our similarities and differences. It could easily be the anchor book for many lessons on diversity. Thank you for your kind words! I can not wait to read your books.
