My Big Welcome

Emilia’s world has just been turned upside down.

She has lost everything she has to a wildfire—including the calm country life she is familiar with. Moving to the big city with her family makes everything feel even more overwhelming. She wonders if she will ever fit into her new reality.

When her mom tells her she will be starting at a new school, Emilia’s anxiety increases even further. Will her hopes for Grade 1 be the same as they were before everything changed?

My Big Welcome is a sweet story of how kindness is able to calm the storms that can rage in the heart of any child facing the unknown.

The beauty of this book is that it was inspired by true events.

In a tender display of simple innocence and gestures of children, My Big Welcome reminds people of all ages of how the world can indeed be a beautiful place.
