Our School is a Family is the newest picture book from Shannon Olsen and Sandie Sonke! It is a follow-up to the bestselling Our Class is a Family.
Students have a classroom community with their teacher and peers, but they also have an extended family to support them. Specifically, all of the helpers who are a big piece of the heart of a school:
Administrators, school librarians, counselors, speech pathologists, school secretaries, custodians, reading specialists, cafeteria workers, and parent volunteers…just to name a few!
Our School is a Family is a book that will help students feel extra safe, loved, & supported in their learning environment. Especially when read aloud by a teacher, school librarian, or a special guest reader in the classroom (such as an administrator, counselor, etc).
Throughout the pages, kids will feel more encouraged to form positive relationships with the various members of their school community. Students may also be inspired to show them extra appreciation, and to find ways that they themselves can be helpers at school too.
With its sincere message and inclusive illustrations, Our School is a Family is a valuable addition to any educator’s picture book collection.
“Family can extend beyond one household, one classroom. It’s the people who open the door when you knock. Those who want to bring out the best in you. The ones who help others not for reward, but from the heart.” -S.O.
