You and Me, Me and You

Miguel Tanco. Chronicle, $12.99 (36p) ISBN 978-1-4521-4486-3
In a pensive reflection on father-son communication, a boy contemplates his effect on his father. “I ask you the most difficult questions,” says the child as the two pass a stray dog. At bedtime, the child offers his father “the chance to tell stories,” and when they’re navigating a thorny traffic situation on a bike, the boy reminds his elder to “choose words with care.” Tanco captures each scene in minimalistic pen-and-ink artwork accented with yellow, and the father and child’s meaningful interactions delicately suggest that, in parenting, listening and learning go both ways. Ages 3–5. Agent: Debbie Bibo. (Apr.)
