A pen pal picture book companion to the award-winning and bestselling Same, Same but Different-set in America and Africa-that celebrates the value of compassion, curiosity, and a global community.

Tulsi and Vanessa live on separate continents-one in the mountains in North America, and the other beside the sea in Africa. By exchanging letters, they learn that they both have prankster brothers, love music, and collect treasures from nature. Their daily sights and sounds may be different, but their feelings about their experiences hold many similarities.

This thoughtful story celebrates the connections between two kids who live worlds apart. Together they rejoice in their shared love of family, friends, and community.
