Joyce Wan is a children's book author whose books are for pre-readers. They are joyously colorful board books with adorable personified objects and a strong artistic flair. Wan is clearly an artist, heavily inspired by Japanese pop art.

My 7-month-old daughter, who is still at that age where most books are much better to drool on than to read, actually loves these books. When my wife and I read them to her, our daughter's eyes light up and she giggles hysterically. She loves the cute little face...more
It's true: I love inanimate objects with faces. Take a boring old apple and draw a face on it, and I'm in 'squee!' heaven. So you can just imagine how much I loved this book, which features everything from mittens to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches just grinning away.

I docked this one a star because it featured smiling eggs and bacon sizzling in a pan. All of the cutesy faces in the world ain't going to make that happy.
My son really liked this book. The pictures are fantastic. Asher enjoys 'reading' the book himself over and over again. We then talk about what else belongs together. My favorite that he came up with is Him and me! Thanks Joyce!
A pre-reader classic? I wouldn't bet against it. Joyce Wan knows what she's doing in writing and illustrating stories designed to draw parent and baby closer, and I've seen her books' effectiveness in action. Almost from before the time my sister's baby could focus her eyes on the pages of a book, she smiled and laughed when we read We Belong Together to her. It's hard to argue that any two good buddies could be much sweeter together than the standby pairs (or is that "pears"? ;-) described in...more

Do you and your special little someone go together like peas and carrots? Peanut butter and jelly? Milk and cookies? This adorable board book is the perfect book for two. Check it out and enjoy!

I loved this. I made everyone read it, including my boyfriend, like the former children's librarian I am.
This is the cutest little board book ever!!! Perfect gift for any little kid age 0-3!
Logan Wilson
It was good, and I think it would be enjoyed well by little kids.

I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway and it is a cute little book!

I haven't read YOU ARE MY CUPCAKE, which this book is a follow up to, but I loved this one! It is a wonderful book that shows how certain things belong together perfectly just like a parent and a child and how strong their bond is. I don't have children but I have a nephew and many young cousins that would enjoy this book.

As an artist at heart, I throughly enjoyed the illustrations, the colors, and the gloss and embossing a...more

This book is a little different from most board books, in that it starts on the front cover and continues right through to the back cover. It is a little book about us belonging together, like many examples of pairs from the book. Some of the pairings are milk and cookies, mittens, peanut butter and jelly, pencil and paper, bacon and eggs, fork and spoon. It is a great little book that children will ask to have read to them over and over again.

My daughter loves this book!
So adorable <3
My two-year-old and I both have this memorized, and LOVE it. Good design, clever text, and adorable illustrations.
This board book for babies and toddlers is a beautiful way for a parent to tell a child how much they love them. The simple text talks about object pairs, peanut butter & jelly, fork & spoon, etc., that children will easily be familiar with associating together. The illustrations are simple, yet bright, colorful, and engaging.
Off the cuteness charts with this one. There is probably no more perfect gift for your little one or your honey. The spot gloss and embossing will make you want to pet it while you squee. - Becky, Teen Librarian

Reserve a library copy!
Sweetly illustrated, this book shows pairs of inanimate objects with smiling faces (cookies and milk, bacon and eggs, two mittens, a fork and a spoon, hot chocolate and marshmallows) that go together just like the reader and baby.
As other readers have said the "cuteness of this book is off the charts !" I love this book. I love the texture in the book, the fonts, the pictures, the words, the faces, and all the hearts.

WE BELONG TOGETHER is a book about love.
Drew Graham
Some things just belong together.

This book is kind of awesome. The illustrations celebrating paired inanimate objects are tactile, vibrant and modern, and feature rosy cheeks and understandably smiling faces. Bacon every day!
Such a sweet little book. The graphics are absolutely precious. Love the different things that go together: cookies & milk, etc. It's little books like this that make you wish you were a kid again.
Off the cuteness charts with this one. There is probably no more perfect gift for your little one or your honey. The spot gloss and embossing will make you want to pet it while you squee.
Received the book from Goodreads Giveaway. Looking forward to sharing it with my newest Grandchild. Great pictures Cute sayings. Any baby will enjoy it

Sweet for wee ones and their special somebodies... about things that belong together (peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, etc.)
LOVE this book. The illustrations are so cute! My son loves it too and always wants to read it over, and over, and over...
An adorable little book I read while hanging around at the Barnes and Noble in Union Square. Too bad its message isn't true.
One of the most adorable board books I've ever seen! Sending it to my nephews to see what they think.
Bought this for my youngest for Christmas 2012... the pictures were too cute to resist. :)
I can't get over how happy this book made me. Smitten little mittens, indeed :)

The design won first place and was subsequently sold through a major department store chain. Twenty years later that design would inspire a design studio called Wanart whose products featuring Joyce's designs are now sold world wide. Joyce also teaches courses on greeting card desig...more
