About "My Big Welcome"
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.
This book was inspired by my daughter’s experience when we fled the Fort McMurray wildfire in 2016.
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.
