"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 true work of art."--BuzzFeed
Oliver Jeffers, arguably the most influential creator of picture books today, offers a rare personal look inside his own hopes and wishes for his child--and in doing so gifts children and parents everywhere with a gently sweet and humorous missive about our world and those who call it home.
Insightfully sweet, with a gentle humor and poignancy, here is Oliver Jeffers' user's guide to life on Earth. He created it specially for his son, yet with a universality that embraces all children and their parents. Be it a complex view of our planet's terrain (bumpy, sharp, wet), a deep look at our place in space (it’s big), or a guide to all of humanity (don’t be fooled, we are all people), Oliver's signature wit and humor combine with a value system of kindness and tolerance to create a must-have book for parents.
For Ages 3 - 7 Years. Pre School - 2nd Grade.

We carry clothing for baby and children, ranging from 0-12 years. Just as each kid is unique, each brand runs a bit differently so we wanted to give you size guidelines for each brand. You will also see size and fit listed in each description within a product. Not all of the brands we carry go up to 12 years of age and so not every piece on our site is available in those larger sizes. Currently, Gray Label goes up to 12Y and Winter Water Factory goes to 10Y. Thimble will have some styles in 8Y. Please feel free to contact us if we can help you further.
