Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Despite its graceful, heartfelt watercolors, Kindermans's tribute to a bond between a goose and gosling unfortunately brings to mind the '70s ballad "You and Me Against the World." "We could travel the sea's bright sands,/ we cold climb the highest lands," goes a typical couplet, "or rest beneath the tallest tree,/ still all we'd need is you and me." The contemplative pictures follow the wanderings of the two through an austere but rose-tinted landscape. By turns realistic (a trip to the beach) and fanciful (the duo is seen scaling the globe, from the perspective of outer space), their travels finally land the pair on a familiar sofa ("For we are dear and trusted friends,/ and I will help you home again"). To Kindermans's credit, the gosling and goose emerge not just as closely bonded but also as distinctive and recognizable personalities, and many of the pictures express an authentic tenderness. The opening spread, for instance, finds the two beak-to-beak and pressing their wings together in a loving patty cake. Her pictures' quiet beauty goes a long way to counteract the greeting card-glibness of the text, which will likely appeal more to adults than to children. Ages 3-up. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Kindermans' rhymed couplets are almost banal, but speak directly to the very young. "All we need is you and me" on one double page is followed by "to be as happy as can be" on the next. The same sentiment ends the book. A goose, which could be mother or father, reassures the gosling as they travel in words and pictures to "cross the world so wide," to "the sea's bright sands," "the highest land," that wherever they go, "I will always love you so." The universal emotion is presented to us in double-page scenes painted in watercolors in subtle tints of yellows and reds. Settings are minimal; the two birds are drawn with deceptive simplicity, allowing the various interactions to gain in emotional impact. They are the only actors in these sparsely defined scenes; our response is therefore keener to the obvious shared affection. As their beaks and wings meet on the jacket/cover, the scene is set for reassuring love. 2006, Philomel Books/Penguin Young Readers Group, Ages 2 to 5.
—Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-In this attractive book, a mother goose tells her little gosling: "All we need is you and me/to be as happy as can be./And no matter where we go,/I will always love you so." The two walk on a beach, cross the world, climb high and low, and return home. Lovely watercolor washes of corals, yellows, and pinks predominate, with the white geese tenderly playing and traveling together against a barely suggested milieu. Finally, they go off into the sunset, wing in wing, in an illustration a bit reminiscent of the final shot in Chaplin's Modern Times. In the same vein as Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You (Candlewick, 1996) and others, this book could give single parents in particular a good one-on-one story to share with their toddlers. Slight, but made special by its delicate art.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Love this Book!!!

    As a single mom it's hard to find books that are cutesy without saying daddy or something. My best friend got it for me for my baby shower and I read it to my unborn child (due any day now) all the time. I definately reccomend for all families but especially if it's a single parent or nontraditional family.

    You and Me is fantastic

    I like this book because it does not specify the relationship between the characters. Certainly, you infer that it is an adult and child but it doesn't have to be. So many children are raised by grandparents or guardians nowadays, that it is nice to have a story that can relate to any child's life. I also bought this book for my boyfriend because again it is just a story about friendship and love and can apply to anyone!
