Little Goosey and Big Gander Goose are out walking by the river. When a storm approaches, they must find a warm, dry place to shelter them.

Small children will know just how Little Goosey feels, and will be comforted by Big Gander Goose's understanding approach.
Sam McBratney is the author of the best-selling and enormously popular picture book GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU, illustrated by Anita Jeram, which was a PARENTING Reading Magic Award winner, a CHILD Best Children's Book, and an American Library Association Notable Children's Book, in addition to receiving many other awards and honors. He says, "I told my children stories when they were young, so when I write, I try to think of what they would have liked."
Ivan Bates debuted as an illustrator with his art for Sam McBratney's THE DARK AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS, which Booklist, in a starred review, called "appealing" and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY deemed "endearing." Of JUST YOU AND ME, he says, "I had to spend a lot of time with geese. It was rather like guerrilla warfare. I had to stay well away from them, hiding in the bushes, or they would hiss at me. I had to take my photographs with a very long lens."

Just You and Me .... What a fabulous book Nov 14, 2001
My son and I have enjoyed this book countless time. He's a middle child, two siblings, all very close together in age. There are not many times that he and I have alone together. This book has brought a smile to his face EVERY SINGLE TIME we have read it together, from age three until now, he's almost five. We only read it when it's just the two of us. I can't recommend it highly enough. The story is sweet, the pictures are marvelous, and just wait till your child looks at you with adoring eyes when you read "Just you and me". It's a keeper.
A sweet story with beautiful illustrations Jul 17, 2000
I really love the illustrations in this book. It is a very nice story for a father to read to a child. It addresses fear of rain storms in a very gentle way. It is sure to result in "again again" from your child, as it did mine.
