Amelia Press Releases ‘Different or the Same?’ Children’s Book

Amelia Press, the children’s book division of No Frills Buffalo publishing company, has released “Different or the Same?” by local author and Orchard Park resident Kathleen Mancuso.

“Different or the Same?” is an amazing mix of what childhood brings. Young children will adore the beautiful, repetitive language that lends itself to an important message about diversity, through understanding differences. Illustrated by Monica Gartler, the book’s artwork is very unique! Loose, textural handling of the media lends itself well to the text, and the simplistic and repetitive text allows children to not only enjoy the book, but join in on the fun! The illustrations are soft, detailed and lifelike.
