Reviews

"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
