From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-In this debut picture book, a boy and girl reflect on a long list of foods that belong together: peas and carrots, macaroni and cheese, bread and butter, and extend the concept to themselves. "We belong together./Mouthwatering are we./We complement each other./We're the perfect recipe." The concept is sound, celebrating the love between friends or family members, but the execution falls flat on several levels. The rhyme scheme is forced, causing the abbreviation of "marshmallows" to "'mallows" and "flapjacks" to "'jacks," and an awkward verse ends the story. "And I am the salsa to your chip./'Cause we will always belong together/And will never-ever-ever-be split!" The cartoon illustrations, pencil with computer-added color, are engaging on some pages but slightly off on others, featuring green-colored sweet tea and a large pink marshmallow. The age of the characters depicted also seems somewhat ambiguous, making it unclear if they are youngsters playing together or teens on a date.-Martha Link Yesowitch, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NCα(c) Copyright 2013.

Beginning at a farmers’ market that leads to a picnic, this title focuses on the many foods that go together. Childlike pencil illustrations, mainly in greens, oranges, and browns, show two children taking turns imagining two foods that are as compatible as they are: “You are the ’jacks, and I am the syrup. I am the biscuit, and you are the jam. A cup of yogurt with fresh blueberries. Sunny-side eggs with Canadian ham.” Whimsical drawings show the pancakes and syrup in a parade, while the biscuit and the jam enjoy an outdoor café in Paris. With just a few hiccups in the scanning and some slightly off rhymes (chips and crisp, cream and bean, chip and split), the book makes its point. After each four-line rhyme, the pictures return to the two children enjoying their day in the countryside. Use this tasty offering in storytimes focusing on food. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Maryann Owen
