Different? Same! by Heather Tekavec; illustrated by Pippa Curnick. 2017. Digitally rendered. Published by Kids Can Press.
Brief summary: Readers go through the two spread illustrations noticing what is different and what is surprisingly alike with the animals. What is different is immediately noticed. What do they have in common? That is the surprise.
Comments: Very cleverly done. Animals that are usually not thought to have anything in common are shown that they do actually have something in common. A great way to broaden one’s mind by looking at animal characteristics in a new way. Each animal is labeled and a characteristic shared. The last sentence reveals the similarity they share. The back pages have a list of the different characteristics explained.
