You and Me Together: Parents and Children Around the World follows in the sumptuous, photographic picture book format of A Cool Drink of Water. Instead of water, this book looks at parent-child relationships as a global cultural theme. Simple, joyful language with pictures on each page take the reader on a poetic romp through the lives of children and their parents around the world. See parents and children from Alabama to Zimbabwe: "Making a meal / a mess/ a life together, me and you / Catching a fish / a bus / a ball / Dancing a turn or two / Seeing a storm / a bird / the world together, me and you." Stunning photographs lend texture and sophistication to the evocative text and beautifully complement its essential simplicity and sweetness. An elegant design gives the book an upscale and arty look, while keeping it accessible. This is an ideal book to be tenderly shared with a child or to enhance an introductory social studies lesson. Detailed photo captions in the end notes help readers understand the rich story behind each image and provide information about children from a variety of cultures and countries around the world. A map shows the location of each photograph, helping the reader make geographic connections to the pictures. A final note on the status of the world's children provides added social value for readers who are interested in learning more, including ways to help disadvantaged children.
