What colors YOUR world - Craft by Jenny Kostecki-Shaw

"THIS IS MY WORLD. Same, same but Different!"

In my new picture book, Same, Same but Different, Elliot paints a pictures of his world. His teacher mails his art-letter across the ocean to a boy in India named Kailash, who replies with a painting of his  world. Elliot paints the earth and outer space with the sun, moon, stars, and a mark showing where he lives. Kailash includes mountains, a river, a tiger, a cow, the Taj Mahal, and a very different looking moon and sun. They learn that they both love to climb trees, have pets and ride school buses. A friendship grows from their letters and the boys discover that they are actually very similar even though their worlds look very different.

If possible, read Same, Same but Different (check it out from your local library or order through your local bookstore or on amazon.com. Talk with your friends, parents and teachers about Elliot and Kailash's lives and what ways your life might be similar or different.

Look around you. What colors YOUR world? What do you love? What sounds do you hear? What makes your world unique from Elliot and Kailash's and other kids around the world? Create your own art inspired by an imaginary or real pen pal, your travels or ideas about the people and cultures of our world. Draw, paint or collage a picture of your world and share it with us.
