Welcoming All Friends, by June Ebersold

Welcoming All Friends joins the popular genre of first-day-of-school picture books.  Watching shy Jenna make friends on her first day of school, sharp-eyed children will realize that Jenna’s mother is right:  new friends see Jenna, not just her wheelchair.  The read-aloud text is all about Jenna and her friends—a regular “first-day-of-school” story.   The pictures show other children with several kinds of handicaps and the accommodations available to make them successful.   This picture book might be used by parents or teachers preparing children for today’s heterogeneous classrooms.

June Ebersold will appear at the Local Author Book Fair at the Fairport Public Library, 1 Fairport Village Landing, on Saturday, December 7, 2013, from 2 to 4 PM.
