“A sweet demonstration of how friendship can transcend language barriers.”
—Kirkus Reviews

We Laugh Alike/Juntos nos reimos

Written by Carmen T. Bernier-Grand
Illustrated by Alyssa Bermudez
Published by Charlesbridge

A brand new barrier-breaking and friendship-affirming bilingual picture book from award-winning author Carmen T. Bernier-Grand (Diego: Bigger than Life). Three kids are playing at the park when three more arrive. The groups can’t understand each other because one trio speaks only English and the other only Spanish. But they can express similar thoughts in their own languages. Aquí interactúan el inglés y el español. Can they find a way to play? Of course they can! By watching each other, both groups learn that they are more alike than different and end up discovering new words and making new friends in this adventure propelled by clever integrated Spanish dialogue.
