What I loved: The illustrations are lovely and show the care between parent and child on each page. There is a lot of detail in the background and other animals for children to see and enjoy as well. The rhyming text makes this roll off the tongue easily and is perfect for reading aloud. Each page spread (except the last) has an interactive feature of a slide tab, pull tab, or flaps to move. These interactive elements are great for toddlers, who will love moving the tabs and seeing what happens.
The text is easy to read, very clear and printed in an easy to read size. The pages are nice and thick, easy for little fingers to turn. The tabs for the movements are very sturdy and will hold up well, although the flaps are thinner and may not last through rough readers (but are only found on one page).
Final verdict: YOU AND ME is a sweet book of love between caregiver and child with flowing, rhythmic text and lovely illustrations.
