Five pairs of legs appear against a bright orange background. On the far left, a golden colored dog is seated on the ground wearing a brown working-dog harness. Standing next to the dog is a woman with warm brown skin wearing a turquoise skirt and red high-heeled shoes that match her red cane. At the center of the cover is a child with dark brown skin standing, hand on hip, wearing brightly colored bracelets, blue shorts, a pink shirt, and blue sneakers with yellow laces. To the right is a white skinned child, standing with legs crossed wearing pink and purple striped pants and blue and white sneakers. On the far right, a child with golden brown skin is seated in a blue power wheelchair, wearing a green shirt, yellow shorts, knee-high orange socks and red and white sneakers. The title – We Move Together – appears below in white lettering with the author and illustrator names appearing at the bottom: Kelly Fritsch, Anne McGuire, Eduardo Trejos.
