I Am Here, Where Are You?

Anita Jones, Sarah Horne

In I Am Here, Where Are You? Ollie tells the reader where he is. Using this simple premise, Ollie starts off in the room in his house, then zooms out from this location to his road, his town, county, country, continent, planet, solar system, galaxy and finally universe.For readers aged four and up, I Am Here, Where Are You? follows the simple structure of "This is the House that Jack Built". Photographs and gorgeous artwork by the super-funky Sarah Horne combine to give children a sense of their place in the world by zooming out from their own location. It provides a springboard for discussion of the reader's location and explores concepts of cultural diversity, extended family, time zones and conservation of the planet we all share. Finally, it invites the reader to practise writing their own address, finishing at The Universe. The book provides great support for the geography curriculum at key stages 1 and 2.
