In and Out, All Round About - Opposite Friends

The title of this book, In and Out, All Round About - Opposite Friends, lets us know the topic.

 It's about two kids who are very different from each other. One's a girl and the other is a boy. They're of different races, and like different things, but they still have lots of fun together.

The illustrations by Agy Wilson reminded me of the part of San Francisco where I used to live, and almost made me homesick.

Young kids will enjoy the repetitive pattern of the text. But, more importantly, they'll be encouraged to become friends with others who are different from themselves.

Who knows? Maybe some of them will grow up and help make the world better because of what they learn from this book about accepting others.

Thanks so much for this lovely review! Didn't mean to make you homesick. I just love SF and was glad Agy set the story there.
