You and Me, Me and You- Chronicle (text & illustrations)
You and Me, Me and You, by Miguel Tanco. Chronicle Books 2017
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

“A charming reminder to stop and smell the roses with a child.”
LU AND BEAN READ
“I’ve read a few social media posts lately about how there are not enough books featuring dads as the adult lead. I’m not sure I think that’s true, but I am all in favor of more books showing great dads (read last year’s post about 10 great books for dads to share with their kids). This new picture book celebrating dads, from Spanish author/illustrator Miguel Tanco, is wonderful for all parents to share with their kids.”
“The message of this book is profound, but not so much so that young children can’t grasp it. It’s told with tongue in cheek, as the boy outlines all the ways in which his father learns from him. As we finished reading, Bean announced, “I think the boy is really learning from the dad.” All the while, I was thinking, “Yes, I learn from my children in all these ways.””
BOOKS AND WHAT NOT
“is a picture book written with adults in mind—not necessarily for subtle adult humor, but more as a message for adults with a pleasurable story for children included.
“…these little vignettes are a beautiful reminder of how our actions as adults influence and form young minds. Some of the messages made me cringe, but that’s only a sign that we should be taking the message to heart.”
LET’S TALK PICTURE BOOKS
” this narrow view allows readers to experience unconditional love. It doesn’t matter why the mother / partner isn’t there, all that matters to this child — the memories he will keep — are the positive and loving ones we see in these pages. How sweet is that??”
BOOKS 4 YOUR KIDS
“You and Me, Me and You by Miguel Tanco is the kind of picture book that is really hard to do well, and Tanco does it very well. I have extremely high standards for picture books about the special bond parents and children share and a very low tolerance for sentimentality, of which there is none in Tanco’s book. Also, it’s just plain challenging to capture the similar but different ways that a parent loves a child and a child loves a parent. With You and Me, Me and You, Tanco marvelously, magically does this, perhaps by having the child narrate with the perspective and wisdom of an adult. The pictures tell one story, the words another, and in this I think that both children and adults will “get” and love You and Me, Me and You.
REVIEWS SPANISH AND CATALAN:
LA MAMA FA EL QUE POT
BIENVENIDOS A LA FIESTA
“La opción por unas ilustraciones alegres y sencillas, dibujos coloreados en los que predomina un luminoso amarillo, va de acuerdo con el tono amable y nada enfático del relato. Por otro lado, es un álbum que también se puede poner como ejemplo de que los mejores álbumes para y sobre los más pequeños nacen de ideas y reflexiones cotidianas muy sencillas, o que parecen muy sencillas.”
