Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers

Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers

In this wonderfully illustrated book, Jeffers takes his readers on a tour of Earth where he manages to encapsulate key messages of acceptance, kindness and caring for the planet (and its inhabitants) in a simple yet effective way. Whilst the simplicity of the heartfelt messages conveyed in this book make it suitable for children of a young age, there is certainly scope for deeper conversations with older children too, making this a perfect read for children of all ages!

This story  is a great starting point to exploring the environment and pique children’s interests about the world and how to care for it. If you are looking to develop environmental social action themes with your link class then this book is a lovely way to start. 

As we love this book so much we’ve created a powerpoint which will help you explore the themes in this story with your children and set off on your social action journey. Here We Are Powerpoint
