Friendship transcends: You and Me Both by Mahtab Narsimhan

This is a picture book for young children.  It tells of two friends who love being together and enjoy all of the same things.  Each likes the same kind of jam, feeds the carrots that they are supposed to eat to the class rabbit instead, get haircuts at the same time, etc.  To one another they feel like twins and they wonder if people can tell them apart.  The reader may want to pay attention to the fact that they are shown in different colors, as they are of different races.

The charm of this book is that the children have not yet learned prejudice.  It is based upon a real story.  This would be a good book for a nursery/preschool child as it could open up discussion.  The illustrations are bold and lively.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
