Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Cute rhyming couplets brought to life by vivid illustrations make learning about pairs an auditory and optical delight. Young children will greatly enjoy hearing the rhythm of the words while beginning to understand relationships between the mentioned objects. This is an ideal cuddle time, read-aloud book that parents and children will enjoy together. After all, they (parent and child) are one of the most important pairs of all. Part of the "Harper Growing Tree" series.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Wolff has created luminous illustrations to go with this reissue of Zolotow's text 1969. The poem is still fresh and appealing, as different pairs of things are linked together: "Peace with dove/Home with love" or "Gardens with flowers/Clocks with hours." The rhythm of the language is soothing, making it a terrific bedtime story. The poem always comes back to the refrain, "you with me," along with a picture of an adult and child sharing a cozy moment. Featuring vibrant colors outlined in black, Wolff's paintings are warm and endearing, adding to the feeling of comfort in the text. The artist masterfully combines the two sets of images without overwhelming viewers. For instance, "Sand with sea/and you with me" is illustrated with a father and daughter playing together along the edge of the ocean. The feelings of family love fostered by this book will last long after the last page is turned.-Susan Marie Pitard, Weezie Library for Children, Nantucket Atheneum, MA
Kirkus Reviews
The cozy, 30-year-old title gets bright new illustrations from Wolff and is primed for a new generation of children. Tiny couplets-"Pigeons with park/Stars with dark/Sand with sea/and you with me"-accompany richly colored illustrations with an old-fashioned feel. Some of the couplings are quite puckish, as when "Franks with beans/Kings with queens" is illustrated by a boy and girl bedecked in royal robes digging in to that famous dish. The reassuring refrain of "you with me" (or "me with you") is complemented by scenes of a child with an adult in poses of affection and protection: reading together, holding hands by the sea, cuddling. The original was grand, but here's a chance to replace those lost and worn copies. (Picture book. 2-6) .
