The adorable Abrams kids picture book 'You and Me' (9781419711970) by Susan Verde and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, has been selected by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre for the Fall 2015 edition of Best Books for Kids & Teen.
You and Me is a loving tribute to how fate brought two best friends together. An adorable cat muses about the what-ifs in life: What if he had slept late that one special morning? What if he’d missed his train on that fateful day? Then he might never have met his favorite person in the world, and his entire life would be different!
Two friends delight in the incredible power of serendipity in this charming tale. Illustrated by the bestselling Peter H. Reynolds, You and Me is the ultimate gift for the closest of friends on Valentine’s Day or any day of the year.
"Perfect as a gift book exchanged between kindred spirits, this could also spark interesting conversations about the role of chance in our lives."
"...the small trim size may give the book its strongest audience among gift-giving adults, though children will have no trouble appreciating it."
"This title is a wonderful introduction to the concept of serendipity and the magic of true friendship."
