reviews & honors:
In this quirky and original tale, friends Here and There just can’t seem to get together. Here is always stuck here, while There is always over there. Their distance, though, does not deter the two from being good friends and writing letters back and forth. One day, There has a great idea...With vivid and varied illustrations, this pun-filled story encourages letter knowledge and print and phonological awareness. Older children will be able to pick up on the more subtle humor. VERDICT A fun addition to libraries, especially those with a focus on early literacy. —School Library Journal
From Here to There

Here and There are so similar they’re practically twins. But they could never play together because Here is always here and There is always there, so they become pen pals and write to each other all the time. One day, There gets an idea that could change the distance between them forever.
