USD $17.99

Teacher Notes available for download here.

A young child and their mother set out to visit a loved one. Along the way, the child interacts with other commuters — a father who lives apart from his small daughter, a husband who has lost his wife, a granddaughter who is forgotten by her grandfather, and a mother who fears for her son’s recovery — and discovers that we all are bound by the common experience of love, that appearances can be deceiving, and that it’s our similarities, not our differences, that matter most.

Blue Wolf Reviews, March 2018
The book has delicate paint wash illustrations that suit the tone of the story well. There is a gentleness and positivity about the story, and the colours reflect this.” – Click here to read the review in full

School Days Magazine, February 2018
Visiting You explores a sense of connection, not be scared of strangers or to judge people who may look different …  A good book to show children that despite appearances people have similar qualities as their own. Illustrations are thoughtful and gentle to compliment the story and the message.” – Click here to read the review in full.

Boomerang Books Blog, February 2018
The gentle balance of colour and emotion reveal memories and the child’s growing understanding that he need not fear strangers who appear gruff and scruffy, different and intimidating. That beneath the obvious differences of a person, there often dwells a story worth sharing and a reason to love. This is a mighty concept to grasp in our modern day world …  it promotes a phenomenal sense of humanity, of not judging a book by its cover
