Fans of the New York Times bestseller All Are Welcome will love this a adorable and timely tale about opening a door to those in need, with clever peek-through holes and panoramic pages that beckon young readers inside. Poor Frog’s pond has dried up and he has nowhere to live. Luckily, he meets friendly Mouse, who is just starting to build a new house. “Everybody’s welcome, no matter who they are,” explains Mouse. “Wherever they may come from, whether near or far.” As Frog and Mouse build a house together, they meet more animals without a place to live. Soon, they all join in to build a big, beautiful home where everyone is welcome, safe, and warm. In this sweet forest setting, children will learn how important it is to extend a generous hand to those in need, whether neighbors 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.
