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.

Praise for When I'm With You

"Suggesting that neither storms, mistakes, distance, nor age can come between besties, this reiterative tribute extols long-term fellowship."—Publishers Weekly

"Miller and Wheeler team up for another rhyming rainfall of word-sounds and picture-play. This time, it’s an ode to life-long friendship. [...]  Like their first two books Wherever You Go and When You Are Brave, the text reads more like song lyrics than a narrative, but Wheeler’s fresh illustration style done in ink, watercolor, acrylic paint, wax pastels, and collage give readers plenty of story to live in."—School Library Journal
