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 home, they hope to find refuge in a new land. Where will they travel to? Who will they meet? And will they be made to feel welcome?

With simple text, reassuring images, and themes of kindness and cooperation, Welcome offers the perfect opportunity for parents, grandparents, teachers and guardians to discuss the situation of migrants and refugees in a gentle and hopeful way with young children.

“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
