Recently, I've noticed quite a few back-to-school picture books that center on empathy and inclusion: All Are Welcome by Alexandra Penfold comes to mind, as well as Jacqueline Woodson's new picture book The Day You Begin.
Why not share these books with parents, students, and teachers in your library to get them thinking about ways they can welcome everyone within the classroom?
All you need is our quick print-and-post flyer
(and maybe a few shiny apples, or backpacks and folders from the lost-and-found box) for a display of all those back-to-school/first-day-of-school books that are flying off the shelves this time of year.
Keep turning those pages,
