We are big fans of Oliver Jeffers in our house. My kids love The Day the Crayons Quit so much that when I heard that Oliver Jeffers had a new book coming out—I just knew it would be incredible. So this week, our KidLit Pick of the Week is HERE WE ARE by Oliver Jeffers.
With the birth of his first child, Jeffers wanted to show his new son how important our world is and how to take care of it. This is a gorgeous book about our planet and the people who live here.
My children enjoyed the highlighted info included about the constellations, parts of the ocean, and simple, yet informative, details of our land. I would best describe this book as a modern-day Richard Scarry book and a perfect gift for new parents.
It has a calm, yet comical, message that we should be kind to one another, that we are all unique, and that you are never alone.
