This beautiful hardcover book illustrated by Greg Abbott welcomes the refrain:
No matter who they are,
Wherever they may come from,
Whether near or far."
If your friend needs a place to live what happens? Would you open your door and say, "Welcome"?
Opening a door to those in need is of great importance when poor Frog's pond has dried up and he has nowhere to live.
Luckily Mouse's approach to everyone being welcome as he builds his house assists not only Frog but other forest animals too.
In this sweet forest setting, children learn how important it is to extend a generous hand to those in need, whether neighbours in crisis, a friend with a problem, or a family immigrating to a new country. It's a timely, vital and comforting story that will inspire useful conversations about caring, charity and empathy.
