What shall we build, you and I?
Let's gather all our tools for a start.
For putting together...
and taking apart.
A father and daughter set about laying the foundations for their life together. Using their own special tools, they get to work, building memories to cherish, a home to keep them safe, and love to keep them warm. From Oliver Jeffers, world-renowned picture book creator, comes a gorgeously told father-daughter tale — a companion to his best-selling book Here We Are, and a rare and enduring story about a parent's boundless love, life's endless opportunities, and all we need to build a together future.
"Zooming in on her small hands, his large ones, and the tools they have both assembled, it’s clear that the narrator views the girl as a capable partner, despite her age — 'Let’s build a door/ where there was none,// We’ll build a house/ to be our home'.... In the story’s most developed episode, the two realize that building walls keeps potential friends out, and they open their fortress gates to admit a Viking, a pirate, a witch, and a lavender-colored surgeon. Jeffers’s benediction portrays a parent who surrounds his child with love and steadies her as she learns how to bring her dreams to fruition." — Publishers Weekly
