“An important book that celebrates diversity and inclusion in a beautiful, age-appropriate way.” – Trudy Ludwig, author of
The Invisible Boy
“Penfold and Kaufman have outdone themselves in delivering
a vital message in today’s political climate.” —
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Celebrate a school community as a great common ground where families of all kinds connect and share in their children’s educational journey…. the book’s refrain of “All are welcome here” feels both
deeply reassuring and almost radical in our polarized time.” —
“This is a
must-read for pre-school and elementary classrooms everywhere.” – Trudy Ludwig, author of
The Invisible Boy
