  • Review Date: 2011-05-02
  • Reviewer: Staff

Padmanabhan's concept book about diversity features the prompt "Can you find me?" written in a different language on each page, along with phonetic pronunciations and a brief discussion of each language ("Cheetah, pajamas, and shampoo are words you might know that come from Hindi"). The "me" in question refers to an object, animal, or person that's different from similar items on each spread, which appear to be cut-paper shapes, thickly outlined in puffy paint. Many of the distinctions are quite subtle (one straight line among curvy ones; a box without a match, a ladder with different colored rungs), which points to the book's understated message about the subjective nature of difference, but may frustrate readers. Ages 6–9. (July)
