The Welcome Home brings a deeper meaning to “Home Sweet Home.” A family is what fills your home with so much love no matter how unique they may be. A creative and imaginative addition to your little ones reading. ~ Momma Braga
Mr. and Mrs. Gargleson-Bittle are looking for a change. Their life has become too quiet, and little changes like eating waffles only help for a moment. They decide to get a pet—but what kind should they have? First they welcome a snail into their home, then an elephant named Louise, then an aardvark named Sam.
One by one they come, and while the house is definitely no longer quiet, Mr. and Mrs. Gargleson-Bittle still have room and love for more. Could this waggy, lick-your-face puppy be what makes their family complete?
The Welcome Home brings so much love that you can’t help but smile while you read the story. An imaginative and creative tale of how family can look in many different ways. However, at the end of the day, it is the shared love that makes any family complete.
We just adored this children’s book and we love all the different creatures that are incorporated as this family is formed. It amazed us at the creativity in all the names and this family is amazing to be able to remember them all. 😉
For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give The Welcome Home 5 wagging tails out of 5! It brought the true meaning of ‘Home Sweet Home’ with this beautiful children’s story. A family is what fills your home with so much love no matter how unique they may be. A creative and imaginative addition to your little ones reading. A must read story!
I loved reading this story and I love how the home went from empty to completely full. I am glad that Mr. and Mrs. Gargleson-Bittle filled it with so much love. ~ Nikki, Age 9
