Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth
Insightfully sweet, with gentle humor and poignancy, here is Oliver Jeffers' user's guide to life on Earth.
Oliver Jeffers, arguably the most influential creator of picture books today, offers a rare personal look inside his own hopes and wishes for his child - and in doing so gifts children and parents everywhere with a gently sweet and humorous missive about our world and those who call it home. He created it especially for his son, yet with a universality that embraces all children and their parents. Be it a complex view of our planet's terrain (bumpy, sharp, wet), a deep look at our place in space (it’s big), or a guide to all of humanity (don’t be fooled, we are all people), Oliver's signature wit and humor combine with a value system of kindness and tolerance to create a must-have book for parents.
