Two boys, one in the U.S. and one in India, are penpals, exchanging letters about their lives. They (and the reader) learn that despite living in two different places, that their lives are similar in many respects. The colorful multi-media illustrations are superb and really add to the story. Parents and teachers might remember being penpals with a child living in a different country but students today have instant access through social media, so pre-teaching about the long-lost art of letter writing would be helpful. A great story to begin a unit on global awareness for the elementary-age set. Pair with "Off to Class: Incredible and Unusual Schools Around the World by Susan Hughes.Was this review helpful?
