Reviews

This title continues Harris and Westcott's Let's Talk about You and Me series of books, which makes abstract concepts accessible to young readers and their adults. Their newest follows an interracial family through an amusement park--where better to find a kaleidoscope of humans?
--Booklist

Presenting several diverse families enjoying the various attractions at an amusement park, Harris explores the numerous ways that people are alike and different...Westcott's signature child-friendly cartoon illustrations support and expand the theme of the text. Crisp and clear, the images depict a variety of individuals--children in wheelchairs, a woman in a hijab, a man wearing a turban, and a boy wearing a yarmulke--and add charm and invite repeated examination.
--School Library Journal

Through the easily comprehended text, the colorful digital illustrations, and the insightful conversations between Gus and Millie, young children will come to understand the important message about people--no matter how similar and different they are, they are all very much the same. This story is an excellent tool for use in early elementary classrooms to discuss the similarities and differences of people.
