All Are Welcome by Alexandra Penfold
The #1 New York Times bestselling picture book, celebrating diversity and inclusivity. No matter how you start your day, what you wear when you play, or if you come from far away, all are welcome here. Follow a group of children through a day in their school, where everyone is welcome. A school where children in patkas, hijabs, baseball caps and yarmulkes play side by side. A school where students grow and learn from each other's traditions. A school where diversity is a strength. Warm and inspiring, All Are Welcome lets young children know that no matter what, they have a place, they have a space, and they are welcome in their school.
