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 will be purchasing some of these for gifts as well!
Looking forward to reading this one over and over again!!!
Note: This book is clearly intended to be read to new babies (one line says something like "you can't speak yet"), but my 3-year-old and 8-year-old love it anyway (and unfortunately, I did not know about it when they were babies, so it's not just nostalgia that's got them hooked).

Quite simply everyone young and old should have a copy of this book.
Having just read it for the first time it really has taken my breath away, just incredible illustrations and poignant words.
I cannot wait to get reading this with my daughters (aged 1 & 4), I think they will love it and I just know how much pleasure we’ll get from snuggling up at bedtime reading this book and talking about it together as they grow. I look forward to reading it with them as they get older too, seeing them understand different aspects of it a little more.
I can’t see this book spending long on our bookshelf at all.
I would highly recommend this book as a gift for any aged child or adult. I am planning on buying another copy as a new baby gift and writing a little message inside.
