“The wonder of being a dad is on display in this touching tribute to fathers. After all, the connection between a father and child yields a lifetime of learning and love. In You and Me, Me and You, that special bond is honored through poignant, tenderly rendered illustrated vignettes: a father and son walk together, discuss life amid a city’s bustle, play, and, perhaps most profoundly, grow, side by side. Bright pops of Pantone yellow infuse each spread with joy, and a cloth spine adds an irresistible specialness. At once a treasured Father’s Day gift and a year-round “I love you,” parents and children will delight in this celebration of a supremely meaningful relationship.” [PUBLISHER]

Review
[WC 247]
You and Me, and Me and You is about a father and son relationship as narrated by the son. The young boy is nameless, allowing any young boy to easily slip into the story and talk to his father. As the pair enjoys their time together (yoga and physical play in the park, meeting strangers on a city bus, riding a bicycle, imaginative play, and many more), the son reminds his father all the ways he’s helped him grow and learn. Dad is certainly lucky to have this little boy in his life, and teaching him the important things he needs to know. Dad never utters a word, leaving all commentary to his son.

Miguel Tanco complements his text with black and white illustrations, each with just enough yellow to set the scene and grab your attention. While the boy takes credit for all dad has learned, it is obvious the boy has learn—maybe more—from dad.

June 18, 2017 will be Father’s Day. You and Me, and Me and You makes a perfect gift for dad from his son (or daughter). Though the activities are boy-biased, a girl can partake in any of them, making You and Me, and Me and You simply perfect for dad on his day.

You and Me, and Me and You showcases the love between father and son and the wonderful relationship available to both. We all learn from those around us, but never more than from those we love.
