Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-Wolff has created luminous illustrations to go with this reissue of Zolotow's text (1969). The poem is still fresh and appealing, as different pairs of things are linked together: "Peace with dove/Home with love" or "Gardens with flowers/Clocks with hours." The rhythm of the language is soothing, making it a terrific bedtime story. The poem always comes back to the refrain, "you with me," along with a picture of an adult and child sharing a cozy moment. Featuring vibrant colors outlined in black, Wolff's paintings are warm and endearing, adding to the feeling of comfort in the text. The artist masterfully combines the two sets of images without overwhelming viewers. For instance, "Sand with sea/and you with me" is illustrated with a father and daughter playing together along the edge of the ocean. The feelings of family love fostered by this book will last long after the last page is turned.

From Kirkus Reviews

The cozy, 30-year-old title gets bright new illustrations from Wolff and is primed for a new generation of children. Tiny couplets``Pigeons with park/Stars with dark/Sand with sea/and you with me''accompany richly colored illustrations with an old-fashioned feel. Some of the couplings are quite puckish, as when ``Franks with beans/Kings with queens'' is illustrated by a boy and girl bedecked in royal robes digging in to that famous dish. The reassuring refrain of ``you with me'' (or ``me with you'') is complemented by scenes of a child with an adult in poses of affection and protection: reading together, holding hands by the sea, cuddling. The original was grand, but here's a chance to replace those lost and worn copies. (Picture book. 2-6) -- Copyright ©1998, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

In "Some Things Go Together" Ashley Wolff has taken a charming 30 year old story and added wonderful, colorful illustrations. The simple rhymns are wimsically pictured by Wolff - such as a mother sitting with her child reading or her colorful parade of clowns, dancing dogs and prancing horses! A book you will love to read to your child and your child will love to read!

I used the book for a bridal shower. I photoshop'd the bride and groom to be onto all the "you and me" pages. It was perfect, especially since the groom was a veterinarain specializing in hogs. People loved it at the shower.

Format: Hardcover
"Some Things Go Together" is a good learning book for young children offering colorful drawings and word associations to teach youngsters what goes with what. Some of the word associations in this book deal with symbolism (like, house with love) while others deal with direct relationships (like grass and green). Most of the associations are nouns and/or adjectives but there are a few verbs too, to broaden the learning experience.

To add to the learning and memorization process, each of the word associations is paired with another one that rhymes. This was a good idea on the part of the author because kids tend to remember things when they rhyme. Take away the rhyming and many of these associations would not remain in a child's memory bank for very long. The rhyming pattern makes it easy to memorize the different associations.

Kids enjoy the verbal aspects of this book but they also like the pictures. The pictures are drawings and they feature lots of people, animals, and objects. The author and illustrator decided to mix up the illustrations by depicting full- page drawings some of the pages (specifically, on the word associations that come one for every two pages) and smaller, snapshot- like drawings (on the word associations that come one to a page) on others.

To emphasize the importance of family, the caption "you with me" (or "me with you") appears multiple times. At first, I felt this was a sign that the author lacked creative writing talent. But then I understood that this was done for a reason: So that little kids would realize that the most important association of all is that between him/her and the parents.

Format: Hardcover
The 1983 edition of this simple, attractive book--by one of the most respected authors of books for young children--is illustrated by Karen Gundersheimer. Her multi-colored drawings are reminiscent of those by the renowned illustrator, Maurice Sendak.
The idea that mother and child go together is reinforced several times throughout with phrases like: "Leaves with tree and you with me," or "Sand and sea and you with me," and concluding with, "Sky with blue AND ME WITH YOU!"
The small size of "Some Things Go Together," make it perfect for mother and child reading together, especially with preschool or kindergarten aged children.
