Here We Are is a beautiful, sensitive and fun book. Perfect as a gift for new parents and anyone who cares about the earth and it's inhabitants, especially in these uncertain times.
I gasped at the stunning artwork - my 2-year-old son was especially enraptured at the ocean and animal pages. There are so many beautiful details on each page.
I teared up at the earnest words. All children (and adults) need to hear the messages in this book - be kind; people are people no matter what they look like; take care of our planet and others; and there is room for all here on Earth. Especially timely given our current hostile political and global events.
I immediately ran to Amazon to purchase this and will be giving it to my son as his Christmas book for 2017. I've been searching for the one with the right message and this is 100% perfect. Will be buying copies for other kids in my life too.
Love, love, love. Thank you, Oliver!
This children’s novel describes the world to the main character. The world is huge, it’s confusing, it’s interesting and there is so much for anyone to learn so come along and listen while they explain it to the main character. They touch on different subjects (sea, people, sky, solar system, etc.) and provide to the reader details about each of these subjects. The illustrations are wonderful and they sell the novel. They’re bold, colorful and the detail is outstanding, I took my time looking at these wonderful works of art.
I liked the tone of the novel, it was friendly and encouraging. It showed me just how amazing Earth is and the ending left a warm feeling in my heart. This is definitely a children’s novel that needs to be read and cherished. Highly recommended!
I will be purchasing some of these for gifts as well!
Looking forward to reading this one over and over again!!!
