WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE: 40+ PAIRS OF THE SEEMINGLY SIMILAR by Emma Strack, illustrated by Guillame Plantevin (Chronicle Books; ages 3-7)
• Have you ever struggled to remember the difference between a crocodile and an alligator? Ever wondered when an embryo becomes a fetus? Found yourself pondering the distinction between tights and stockings? All these answers and innumerable more are found in this fascinating book that teaches the distinctions between 42 seemingly similar pairs and the value of specific language.
This rather large book is divided into six sections: Animals, Food & Drink, Geography, Fashion, Human Body, and City. Within each section five or more pairs sit opposite each other with bold, graphic images and palette. A brief introduction leads into multiple smaller images paired with factual information pertaining to associated similarities and differences — e.g. "The rabbit digs burrows and lives in colonies. The hare is a solitary animal that lives in a nest (a small depression in the ground) or in the grass, without digging a burrow." Also included with each pair is a comparative chart of more formal classifications and statistics.
The overall effect is a fascinating exploration into the rationale between the pairs' linguistic/categorical similarities and distinctions. And a lesson in the importance of attention to detail — while two things may seem identical at first blush, there is merit to understanding their differences.
It is also a fun way to broaden one's general knowledge base, and a sure-fire path to having your kids correct every one-humped "camel" image with a loud exclamation, "That's a DROMEDARY!" (There are a surprising abundance of such images!)
