*"'Here We Are' Is a Baby's Primer on the Universe. It's a good thing we don't 

remember being born. With an unceasing procession of strange smells, 

unfamiliar sights and alien sounds — not to mention cooing faces thrust into our 

field of vision — the first moments of post-uterine existence must have been 

utterly bewildering. We were barely acquainted with the mechanics of our 

nascent corporeal form, let alone the wider world that extended far beyond our 

nubby, lolling appendages. 

Like any able new father, Oliver Jeffers decided to give his infant son, Harland, a 

primer on this strange new reality. "The start of it was when we came home from 

the hospital, and at the front door of our apartment I announced, 'Here we are, 

this is where you live!' and proceeded to give him a tour," Jeffers told 

The author and illustrator found the process of explaining the "sheer magnitude 

of everything, from scratch" at once absurd and overwhelming. It also formed 

the kernel of what would become his latest picture book, "Here We Are: Notes for 

Living on Planet Earth" (Philomel Books, 2017). [Best Space Books for Kids]."
