A fabulously illustrated look at our place in the world - from the room we are in right out to the universeIn I Am Here, Where Are You? Ollie tells the reader where he is.

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.
