And welcome to this Planet.
We call it Earth.
Our world can be a bewildering place, especially if you’ve only just got here. Your head will be filled with questions, so let’s explore what makes our planet and how we live on it. From land and sky, to people and time, these notes can be your guide and start you on your journey. And you’ll figure lots of things out for yourself. Just remember to leave notes for everyone else… Some things about our planet are pretty complicated, but things can be simple, too: you’ve just got to be kind.
Here We Are is the utterly heartfelt new book from Oliver Jeffers. We’re glad you found it.
Here We Are is a tour through the land, the sea, the sky, our bodies; dioramas of our wild diversity….Jeffers is the master of capturing the joy in our difference.”
That sense of unity is ultimately what Jeffers is trying to remind all of us in Here We Are.
