From acclaimed author Linda Ashman and illustrator Eve Coy comes I Like This, You Like That, a joyful picture book about making new friends and finding common ground.
We’re opposites! / You’re right—we are.
Like big and small. / Like near and far.
But even when we disagree / I like you, and you like me.
A rhyming friendship story told in two voices, this picture book follows two children as they try to discover what they have in common, from favorite toys to shaggy dogs to pizza toppings.
With its gentle message and dynamic illustrations, this sweet story is sure to resonate with young readers.
“This quietly beautiful celebration of childhood will appeal to a wide range of young readers and may inspire dialogue about constructive disagreement and respecting differences.” —School Library Journal (Starred Review)

"This quietly beautiful celebration of childhood will appeal to a wide range of young readers and may inspire dialogue about constructive disagreement and respecting differences."
"Few picture-book authors have Ashman’s gift for writing rhymed verse with a natural cadence and an easygoing style. Appearing in speech balloons, the children’s comments reflect individual preferences rather than gender stereotyping. Coy’s bright, buoyant illustrations, created with watercolors, aquarelle crayons, and colored pencils, capture the many moods of children at play."Booklist
