Like Jake and Me. Mavis Jukes. Timid Alex strives to be like his rugged cowboy stepfather, and the two find a common bond when Alex 'rescues' Jake from a wolf spider. Jukes' quiet observations are unfaltering in their perceptiveness. Radiant full-page pastel illustrations serve as a striking counterpoint. This is an uplifting celebration of a new family's understanding, acceptance and love that resonates with truth and humor. -(starred) School Library Journal.

Kindle version is NOT full color even though the description says that it is. Very disappointed.

I read this to my 10 year old and she liked it. Nice heart warming story about a step dad.

I LOVE this book and ordered a paperback copy as a gift. I just received it and was shocked to find a book the size of a photograph! This is a beautiful picture book. One of the best I've ever read and it should have been full size-the same size as the hardcover edition, but instead it is so tiny that you can't see the artwork! Nowhere did I see the dimensions as being 5x7"!! What is the point of a picture book that needs to be viewed through a magnifying glass? I feel that this was really deceptive marketing. I normally love everything I receive from Amazon, but this was just really disappointing! If you want to enjoy this wonderful book, please make sure you buy the full size edition!

Overall Review: Like Jake and Me is a fabulous example of a book that says a lot with very few words. Little Alex is trying to help his step-father, Jake, but is usually brushed off with that age-old phrase, "Maybe another time." Then comes a moment in time when Alex helps Jake--in this instance, Alex realizes that even a grown man and a `real' cowboy can have fears that seem just as simple as his own, and Jake realizes that Alex is a person, too. We see a very sweet bonding moment between a boy and a man who are trying to form a new family. It is very perceptive for such a short book, and deserves multiple readings to discover the many layers. For a child, it's a fun story of a boy helping a man find a spider. For an adult, it's a touching reminder of those moments where we learn from and grow closer to our children. Overall rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Content Review:

PROFANITY: None

VIOLENCE: None

SEXUAL CONTENT: None

MATURE THEMES: Very Mild

RECOMMENDED AGE GROUP: 9+

This sweet little book has no profanity, no violence, and no sexual content. One character undresses piece by piece searching for a poisonous spider, and there is a picture, but there are strategically placed hats and shadows, so nothing is seen; it is rather humorous. The themes are very mild and include overcoming your fears, and realizing that whether adult or child, we are not all that different on the inside. Like Jake and Me is written for very young readers, and is most definitely a Squeaky Clean Read for ages 9+!

A great read-aloud for grades pre-K through 2, this is a wonderful story of a boy just trying to establish a relationship with his rough and ready step-dad. Bonus sub-plot of mom pregnant with the step-dad's twins. Heart-warming ending.
Great story for all kids, but step-parent theme makes this of special interest to families involving a second marriage, step-siblings, or step-parent.
Wonderful illustrations, too.
A Newbery Honor Book, but also a picture book. A boy and his stepfather grow closer when they realize they are more alike than they thought. Not a story you often run across in children's books.
