Here We Are: Notes For Living on Planet Earth

Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth - Oliver Jeffers, Oliver Jeffers
I absolutely love this children’s novel. What a gem! I picked this one up at the library but this novel is one that I will be buying for my own library. It was a fun novel with fantastic illustrations.
 
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!
