J is for Jae-Soo
Yellow Umbrella is one of the first wordless books I ever purchased for my kids and I wish Jae-Soo Liu had more books published, because we love this one!
The “story” starts with one yellow umbrella, as seen from above. On the next spread, the yellow umbrella is joined by a blue umbrella. And so the story continues, more colorful umbrellas joining in, traveling together through a playground, across a street, around a fountain, till they finally arrive at their destination and you see the feet beneath them for the first time. The illustrations are cheerful, yet still soft, as the little umbrellas go waltzing through the rain.
The book also comes with a musical cd that can be played as you “read.” As much as I love music though, this isn’t the selling point for me for this book. My boys and I like to count the umbrellas, talk about the colors, and make up stories of what the children are doing or talking about, and where they’re going.
