Using very simple cut-paper art, the author-illustrator explores what can happen when someone goes from one country to anohter. There a re new faces and places and sometimes the climate, plants, customs, food, and people's skin color can be different, too. When our words differ and we cannot understand one another, people wometimes feel bad, fight, and hurt one another. The author urges the listener to stop and think, "Are we really as differnet as we think?" With the simple analogy of the benefit the sun and the rain bring to flowers, she suggests that we use our tears and smiles to help friendship grow because friendships, like rainbows, are for everyone. A very simply written and effective book to help young children understand and accept their cultural differences. Would be wonderful to initiate discussions in primary classes in every elementary school.

The cut-paper art showing paper dolls in rainbow hues and many shapes emphasizes the pluralistic message in this book. The Spanish and English text says, "We are moving to a new country," explores likenesses and differences and affirms, "We really are so much the same." The book is equally useful in the classroom and the home.
