Holmes, Janet A. Me and You. Illus. Judith Russell. New York: NorthSouth, 2008
Rabbit likes a lot about being himself. He likes that he can hop, build sand castles, and blow up balloons. But most of all, he likes that he can be with his friend Mouse.
What I thought: Short, sweet text. I love the juxtaposition of activities (e.g., “romp in the sun” or “rest in the shade”). The illustrations are soft (colored) and whimsical.
Story Time Idea: Use for a friendship theme.
