Product Details


-“Moments of human intimacy jostle with scenes that inspire cosmic awe, and the broad diversity of Jeffers’s candy-colored humans…underscores the twin messages that ‘You’re never alone on Earth’and that we’re all in this together.”–Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)

-“A sweet and tender distillation of what every Earthling needs to know and might well spend a lifetime striving to achieve. A must-purchase for new parent shelves.” —School Library Journal

-“From the skies to the animal kingdom to the people of the world and lots of other beautifully rendered examples of life on Earth, Here We Are carries a simple message: Be kind.” —NPR

-“A true work of art.”–Buzzfeed

-“A must-have book for parents.”–Gambit

-“A celebration of people all shapes and sizes, and of the beauty and mystery of our Earth.”–Booklist

-“Mr. Jeffers captures the love and the poignancy in what is styled as an introduction to a newcomer… Rich colors, witty pictures and a kind sensibility make this book, published late last year, a nice bedtime choice for readers ages 2-6.”–The Wall Street Journal

-“…a beautifully illustrated guide to living on Earth and being a good person.” —Brightly

-“Something of a user’s guide to being alive and to life on Earth, Jeffers brilliantly uses pen and paintbrush to explore profound and puzzling questions, establishing straight off that the wisdom imparted here is wisdom for us all.”–Chicago Tribune

-[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 differences.”–New York Times Book Review
