It’s filled with rhythm and rhyme that begs to be read aloud, and illustrated with sunshine-bright, joyful art. “We go together like ice cream and cone” shows kids gazing in delight at huge scoops of multicolored ice cream, while a puppy smiles happily at his piled-high bowl in “We go together like dog and bone.” For “fire and dragon,” the appealing green creature toasts marshmallows with his own breath, and adorable cows fiddle, dance, and leap in “cow and moo.” Of course, the satisfying ending has the best pair-up of all: mother and child in a big hug with an “I love you” and two hearts intertwined.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-K
Familiar items are paired in a rhyming text that builds the concept of association. "We go together like socks and shoes./We go together like cow and moo." The final page shows a parent and child and suggests, "We go together, that's what we do. We go together because you love me and I love you." Using the very readable pictures and predictable scheme, children will easily finish the lines. They will also enjoy thinking of other go-together pairs. The colorful illustrations are uncomplicated, yet interesting enough to encourage conversation. Dancing cows, a bathing skunk, and a fire-breathing dragon toasting marshmallows add subtle humor. A solid choice for building pre-literacy skills.

Kirkus Reviews
In rhyming couplets and jaunty cartoons, this celebration of maternal love depicts images of a variety of matching pairs. The verse presents a string of similes--one line per page--and ranges from the everyday ("We go together like socks and shoes") to the fantastical ("We go together like fire and dragon"). The meter mostly works, but there is a forced syllable or two in the mix. Sakamoto's acrylic, gouache and pencil art grounds the text in a playful, kid-friendly world and uses a cast of multicultural people and lively animals. The last spread, featuring a Caucasian mother hugging her child of indeterminate gender opposite hearts, unfortunately steers the whole project into the cloying with the following line: "We go together, that's what we do, because you love me and…I love you!" While metaphor and simile are difficult for toddlers to grasp, the text is buoyant enough, and illustrations give youngsters plenty to admire and recognize. (Board book. 2-4)

    What a fun book!

    This is such a fun book to read out loud! It's not obnoxious like some kid's books can be. This is a keeper!

    I enjoyed writing this book

    This book started by me singing these verses to my son. I wanted to tell him that I love him without saying that over and over...so, I created verses to tell him We Go Together. At the time, there were 483 titles on "Opposites"....when it was published over 1,000! My view is opposites/compare and contrast is a good skill and yet looking for ways that things go together or people for that matter is good for developing creativity and associative skills. I hope you enjoy singing the verses and encouraging your children to create new ones in the car or wherever you go with them!

    All my best, Todd Dunn!

    Delightful and charming

    I wish this book had been available when my teenagers were young!! This is my favorite children's book. The rhymes are terrific, and children (and adults!) come away wanting to create their own. It is also refreshing to be looking for how different things go together. I have bought numerous copies for shower gifts and for children's birthdays. I have also put this at the top of my 'grandma' stack to read to future grandchildren. Everyone I've shared this book with just loves it. It's much more engaging than many of the rhyming books that have become the staples of young children's literature. -Just a brilliant book!!

    Very good book! The pictures are great! My 2 year and my 6 year old love this book. It talks about how many things go together like 'pants and legs' or 'bees and honey'. Of course, this book would be best for a 2-4 year old range because of the simple text.

    Teacher recommended

    I was given this book as a gift and immediately read it to my 3rd grade class. They loved the rhyming and the pictures. We modeled our writing after the book and composed our own book of things that go together. Simple idea that the kids loved and took ownership of. I also read it to my children, 1 and 4, and they loved the art and the rhymes as well. Highly recommended addition to any child's library.

    Beautifully Written and Illustrated

    After bringing home We Go Together from school, my daughter and I have read and re-read this beautifully written book over and over again. The rhythmic lyrics and the colorful illustrations keep this book in my daughter¿s ¿favorite¿ pile. I had to buy two other copies for family members. We highly recommend it.

    A Good Fun Read...

    This book is pure fun to read. My 6 year old son and I read the book together and talk about all the things in the world that 'Go Together'. It is a fun way to interact with your children and to get their minds going!

    Mother of Seven, Every Child Should Have in Library

    Small children are at their most influential period making this book an appropriate educational tool as well as a pleasing rhythmic tone. To teach a hat goes on a head is an insightful step beyond a rhyming book. To use rhythmic sentences is the childlike learning hook. Beautiful concept. I have purchased four books that are heading under the Christmas tree because: We go together like pictures on a wall We go together like this book in Fall This is my hottest holiday pick for Fall and Winter! Enjoy...

    The text of this book does a great job of teaching kids to look for things that Go Together! Kids will love the illustrations and the fun rhymes. Our kids love creating their own verses!
