From Her Majesty Queen Raina Al Abdullah of Jordan and award-winning children’s book author Kelly DiPucchio comes an inspiring story about celebrating similarities across cultures.

Lily and Salma are best friends. They like doing all the same things, and they always eat lunch together. Lily eats peanut butter and Salma eats hummus—but what's that between friends? It turns out, a lot. Before they know it, a food fight breaks out. Can Lily and Salma put aside their differences? Or will a sandwich come between them?

This hopeful story highlights the positive impact of sharing our experiences with each other and valuing what makes us different. In a glorious three-page gatefold at the end of the book, Salma, Lily, and all their classmates come together in the true spirit of tolerance and acceptance.
