Review of We Are Here

[Following is an official OnlineBookClub.org review of "We Are Here" by Scott Weiss.]
Book Cover
4 out of 4 stars

For those who share a bed with a canine companion or who have lost their favorite seat on the couch to a slobbery pooch, the reasons that dogs exist may already be quite obvious. But for those who have never had the pleasure of experiencing all that a pup has to offer, Scott Weiss has a heartwarming list of why dogs are loved so much. In his book, We Are Here, the author relates the fulling purposes of the faithful family pet, and the revelation at the end may surprise and delight you.

I highly enjoyed this sweet children’s book. As someone who grew up in a home with dogs my whole life, I have always had a furry friend nearby, and I related to the many sentiments that the author shared about dogs. I loved that the book featured scenes that brought a tear to my eye, a smile to my face, and filled my heart with joy. I also appreciated the author’s creative imagination that brought a science fiction twist to this 38-page book. The subtle winks shared by the pups throughout the pages made me laugh, and I loved the illustrator’s artistic talents in bringing the written story to life.

The author succeeded in passing on a meaningful message through easy-to-read sentences and colorful pictures. With the world going through a time of loss and great stress, the reminder that we are not alone in our trials and triumphs was a great comfort. Even if you don’t have a dog, the sentiments shared in the book can reflect the support that comes from a close family member, friend, or other beloved pet.

There was nothing that I disliked about the book. The simple story was flawlessly edited, and I found no errors. I also appreciated the diverse character representation throughout the pages. Therefore, I give We are Here four out of four stars.

I’d recommend this beautifully illustrated book to children of all ages. This story would also make an excellent addition to any elementary classroom because it encourages empathy and imagination. The little clues indicating the surprise reveal were a delight to discover throughout the pages; I didn’t even notice some of the obvious ones the first time around! You’ll undoubtedly want to get a copy of this book and read it more than once.

Almost a family around has a dog as a pet or intends to buy one. What's with the buzz about pets? Maybe I can get the answers I am looking for from the pages of this book. Great review

I'm in the middle of liking a dog and not, but it seems that this book can give a reason so I can decide to buy a dog or not.

I couldn't resist looking at your review when I saw the cover illustration. I was not disappointed. Thanks for capturing the warmth and wonder of dogs in your description. It's good to see a book that is so charming and promotes appreciation of dogs in an entertaining way. Thanks to you and your nearby furry friend for this review.
