Synopsis

Welcome by Barroux

The follow-up to Barroux's stunning and critically acclaimed Where's the Elephant? and Where's the Starfish? When Polar Bear and his friends are swept away from their icy home, they hope to find refuge in a new land. But when they are turned away from one new place after another, they start to doubt that they will ever find somewhere they will be made welcome. In this exceptional book, author-illustrator Barroux has crafted a powerful story with a twist ending about hugely important and current issues. A great opportunity for parents to discuss with children the plight of migrants and refugees, as well as global warming, in a gentle, open-ended way. With a reassuring twist, this exceptional and very current book should be read to young children everywhere. - Picture Books Blogger Barroux tells his story with a light touch and a sprinkling of humour, which takes nothing away from the message. - The Bookbag

Reviews

With a beautiful twisting finale, this highly topical book is a must have for all early years setting and primary classes. It needs to be shared, discussed and shared again to help everyone understand the issues and challenges migrants face * Red Reading Hub * a powerful and topical message is dealt with in a sensitive child-friendly way * Read It, Daddy! * This might look like a picture book. It might look as though it's only for children but there's a message in there that we should all take to heart * The Bookbag * a highly poignant story about the plight of migrants, pitched at a younger audience, in words and images that they can relate to * Picture Books Blogger *

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
