    Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend. Wondrous and memorable. Here We Are is a must-read for all ages. ...

    With the birth of his first child, Jeffers wanted to capture what is important to him with regards to the Earth and how he wants his son to live his life on it. Much like his own father (see the back of the book), Jeffers focuses on the need for kindness and care to the planet and each...

    I bought this as a gift for my aunt and uncle who are having their first kid. This is so beautiful, I might buy another one for me. I?m trying to keep myself from crying. The perfect book to read to a tiny, new human, but no matter what your age is, this book will make a home in your...

    Review to come, but in short this is a gorgeous book about our planet and the people who live here, written as an introduction for the youngest members of the human race. There are some laughs as well as things many parents will be able to relate to, and the overall message that we'...

    Awe inspiring, kind, tolerant, overwhelming, sweet, intimate, cute, funny, tender, philosophical, practical and absolutely beautiful. ...

    Beautiful book. As the reader, you are invited to fully immerse yourself into the intriguing wonders on Earth and beyond. The voice is calm and kind, with a hint of humour- the perfect balance. The quotes at the end of the book were insightful into Oliver's life and the wisdom his ...

    Haven?t been a fan of the Oliver Jeffers books I?ve read recently but I loved this one. The illustrations are amazing and so detailed. The words are so simple but put the point across perfectly. It shows us that the world is such a big place and there is so much more to discover! G...

    ?You?re never alone on Earth?. ...

    Read it and immediately bought it for the kids on my Christmas list. Told with Jeffers' signature humor and voice, you can feel his love for his son throughout the pages. The illustrations are incredible and the story is simple and perfect. ...

    Disappointing, nice artwork and interesting idea - notes for living on planet earth. The opening page looked like the opening scene of the Clangers (we are big fans) and I expected some Clangeresque philosophy on our place in the universe and looking after our planet. After a promising...

    Living on planet earth may lead to a lot of questions and Oliver Jeffers answers many with this new book. Not one of my favorites. It makes me want to go hide in the jungle or go to a remote island after reading this. ...

    Add this to your shopping list for any new babies being born, or for holiday/birthday presents for the littlest ones in your life! This is a beautiful piece of art that is a message to our little citizens about the mysterious world that they live in and how to understand and take care ...

    I?m becoming a real fan of Oliver Jeffers and his art. Here we are is a gorgeously illustrated introduction to earth and to diversity and respect. ...

    Over the course of three days more than seventy-five girls and boys looked and listened. There were collective gasps and sighs. There were nods of understanding. There was even applause at the conclusion. Nine and ten-year old children are gifted with a unique kind of wisdom and fre...

    This book is a must have for everyone's book shelf. Every page is full of diverse images and witty words. Favourite line 'We may all look different, act different and sound different....but don't be fooled, we are all people'. Every parent/carer/teacher needs this please! ...

    I love Oliver Jeffers. <3 Excellent picture book, planning to get this for my little brother who is also a primary school teacher. Definitely one for the collection. ...

    This fits perfectly under "Mimi-Prep"! Vibrant colors & illustrations- packs a powerful message from which we should never shy away. Definitely a toddler read but also worthy of childhood (& adulthood) revisits. ...

    I bought this as a gift for my aunt and uncle who are having their first kid. This is so beautiful, I might buy another one for me. I?m trying to keep myself from crying. The perfect book to read to a tiny, new human, but no matter what your age is, this book will make a home in your...

    Review to come, but in short this is a gorgeous book about our planet and the people who live here, written as an introduction for the youngest members of the human race. There are some laughs as well as things many parents will be able to relate to, and the overall message that we'...

    Beautiful book. As the reader, you are invited to fully immerse yourself into the intriguing wonders on Earth and beyond. The voice is calm and kind, with a hint of humour- the perfect balance. The quotes at the end of the book were insightful into Oliver's life and the wisdom his ...

    Haven?t been a fan of the Oliver Jeffers books I?ve read recently but I loved this one. The illustrations are amazing and so detailed. The words are so simple but put the point across perfectly. It shows us that the world is such a big place and there is so much more to discover! G...

    ?You?re never alone on Earth?. ...

    Read it and immediately bought it for the kids on my Christmas list. Told with Jeffers' signature humor and voice, you can feel his love for his son throughout the pages. The illustrations are incredible and the story is simple and perfect. ...

    Disappointing, nice artwork and interesting idea - notes for living on planet earth. The opening page looked like the opening scene of the Clangers (we are big fans) and I expected some Clangeresque philosophy on our place in the universe and looking after our planet. After a promising...

    Living on planet earth may lead to a lot of questions and Oliver Jeffers answers many with this new book. Not one of my favorites. It makes me want to go hide in the jungle or go to a remote island after reading this. ...

    I like everything about this book. ...

    This book should be in every classroom. What a gem! ...

    I am charmed. A very good birthday gift to a recently birthed child. It doesn't resemble Mo Willem's instruction manual, but it delighted me just as much. Library copy ...

    I?m becoming a real fan of Oliver Jeffers and his art. Here we are is a gorgeously illustrated introduction to earth and to diversity and respect. ...

    Over the course of three days more than seventy-five girls and boys looked and listened. There were collective gasps and sighs. There were nods of understanding. There was even applause at the conclusion. Nine and ten-year old children are gifted with a unique kind of wisdom and fre...

    This book is a must have for everyone's book shelf. Every page is full of diverse images and witty words. Favourite line 'We may all look different, act different and sound different....but don't be fooled, we are all people'. Every parent/carer/teacher needs this please! ...

    I love Oliver Jeffers. <3 Excellent picture book, planning to get this for my little brother who is also a primary school teacher. Definitely one for the collection. ...

    This fits perfectly under "Mimi-Prep"! Vibrant colors & illustrations- packs a powerful message from which we should never shy away. Definitely a toddler read but also worthy of childhood (& adulthood) revisits. ...

    A masterpiece. Got this for my infant daughter but really it was a gift to myself. ...

    Jeffers, a master at his craft, wrote this book to explain our planet to his son. ...

    It is a wonderful, super, awesome book. There are lots of messages. One of it is time is very important, so you shouldn?t waste it and use it properly. The second one is, be respectful to everyone, everyone is different, everyone has different abilities, gender, race, color, disabili...

    This is a sweet and beautifully illustrated guidebook that Oliver Jeffers wrote and illustrated in the first two months of his son's life. Jeffers shares wonderful thoughts on life with his son, such as kindness and togetherness. There are also themes on taking care of ourselves, each ...

    An explanation of the world (including land, water, and outer space) and the human beings that populate it, told in a basic, child-friendly, and humorous way. This wonderful picture book manages to be a concise manual by which to live, without being preachy. Recommend for all ages. ...

    I love Oliver Jeffers. <3 Excellent picture book, planning to get this for my little brother who is also a primary school teacher. Definitely one for the collection. ...

    This fits perfectly under "Mimi-Prep"! Vibrant colors & illustrations- packs a powerful message from which we should never shy away. Definitely a toddler read but also worthy of childhood (& adulthood) revisits. ...

    A masterpiece. Got this for my infant daughter but really it was a gift to myself. ...

    Jeffers, a master at his craft, wrote this book to explain our planet to his son. ...

    It is a wonderful, super, awesome book. There are lots of messages. One of it is time is very important, so you shouldn?t waste it and use it properly. The second one is, be respectful to everyone, everyone is different, everyone has different abilities, gender, race, color, disabili...

    This is a sweet and beautifully illustrated guidebook that Oliver Jeffers wrote and illustrated in the first two months of his son's life. Jeffers shares wonderful thoughts on life with his son, such as kindness and togetherness. There are also themes on taking care of ourselves, each ...

    I adore Oliver Jeffers. His books are always something special. Here We Are didn?t hit me as hard as others, but still a beautiful reading treat and message. A book that introduces kids to the world in a simple, warm, kind way. A book that says?.?You?re never alone on ...

    An explanation of the world (including land, water, and outer space) and the human beings that populate it, told in a basic, child-friendly, and humorous way. This wonderful picture book manages to be a concise manual by which to live, without being preachy. Recommend for all ages. ...

    This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It is a really interactive way to teach children a broad range of topics such as astronomy, being eco-friendly and includes global citizenship themes as well. I will deffo be using this book in my classroom. ...
