I love sharing children’s stories that have a multicultural background with my daughter. One reason is because she is multicultural herself. Another reason is that these stories provide an educational glimpse of the world outside of where she lives. I recently discovered a free multicultural ebook series called, “Same Same But Different” and wanted to share these with you.
“Same Same but Different” is a free illustrated children’s ebook series that introduces young readers age 6–10 years to different cultures, languages and geographies around the world.
The series was founded by Kanako, who is Japanese, and Daniel, who is American/British. Their goal is to provide young readers with information on how other children live in the world and point out similarities and differences amongst children (hence Same Same but Different) in a fun and positive way.
