Summary of The Umbrella Summary of The Umbrella Reviews for The Umbrella An Excerpt from The Umbrella
Jan Brett's New York Times bestselling picture book The Umbrella has all the rollicking fun of the woodland animals that crowd into a mitten in the snow in The Mitten. Only this time it's in a lush cloud forest as one by one, tree frog, toucan, kinkajou, baby tapir, quetzal, monkey, and jaguar crowd into an open, upside down banana umbrella until a tiny hummingbird lands and they all fall out. A shortened text for toddlers and simple Spanish phrases like "Hola!" add to the fun of reading aloud this lively board book.

"Handsomely designed and beautifully executed." - Kirkus Reviews

"The watercolor-and-gouache illustrations are stunning." - School Library Journal
