There's something that I've noticed.
Perhaps you've seen it, too.
Life is so much better
when it's me and you.
From the time we are young, we are drawn to special people--the ones who complete our sentences and who know our favorite color, food, and song. The people who understand us and make us happier than anyone else in the world. After all, no matter how much time passes or how many miles tug us apart, there is no one quite like a best friend.
From New York Times bestselling creators Pat Zietlow Miller and Eliza Wheeler, this jubilant celebration of friendship and the adventures of childhood will make your heart sing.

Are you ready for Spring?! I know I am and this gorgeous new children’s book has got me ready to go outside and have some fun!
When I’m With You by Pat Zietlow Miller is a book about friendships. I love the diverse representations of the children in the illustrations in the book. It’s one of the main reasons I picked it up. The scenes on each page are fun and whimsical. The lyrical verse is perfect for a read aloud. I had so much fun reading it with my 5 year old! By the second read, he was helping me with the rhymes. It is a great opportunity to have an interactive reading session with kids.
This is of course, a great opportunity to talk to children about friendships. The easy question is to ask them about their own friendships. But I would push further and talk about how friendship develops and the different things that happen in a friendship which the book points too. This angle lets all children participate, even the ones who are struggling with making friends. A fun activity also might be for kids to draw a scene about an activity they would like to do with a friend.
