Description


Ways to Welcomes is a sweet, timely picture book from writer Linda Ashman and illustrator Joey Chou about kindness and connection, ideal for schools and classrooms.

A welcome can be warm
Or cold,
Shy and quiet,
Big and bold.
An offering,
A smiling face,
That lights an unfamiliar place.
There’s lots of ways to show we care
and welcome friends from everywhere!


When everyone knows they’re welcome, the world is a better place—and you might just make a new friend. This sweet, timeless picture book about small acts of kindness in a big world is one that kids and parents are sure to reach for again and again.

Praise For…


"Ashman and Chou look at some simple ways to say, 'Hello, friend. / I’m glad you’re here,' with acts of kindness and friendly gestures . . . Simple, stylized artwork in bright shades keep the focus on the interactions, and readers will delight in finding the blue butterfly in every scene. A springboard for readers to consider their own ways to welcome." --Kirkus Reviews

"Stories about inclusiveness, kindness, simple hospitality, and positive representations are all in high demand these days, and this attractive title fits the bill. Most libraries and preschools will find this a welcome ­addition." --School Library Journal

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
