Back of Book:
Follow a group of children through a day in their school, where everyone is welcomed with open arms. A school where kids in patkas, hijabs, and yarmulkes play side-by-side with friends in baseball caps. A school where students grow and learn from each other’s traditions and the whole community gathers to celebrate the Lunar New Year. All Are Welcome lets young children know that no matter what, they have a place, they have a space, they are welcome in their school.
My Review:
This is a remarkable and beautifully executed picture book about the importance of diversity and inclusion in classrooms. The story follows several children as they enjoy all aspects of class together. This story shows readers that all students coming to school with different cultures, traditions, and experiences. The illustrations are simply memorizing! Each page of the book ends with the sentence you are welcome here. I also love that the dust jacket turns into a beautiful poster that can be hung on the wall. A great addition to any diversity unit.
