The Umbrella by Jan Brett

January 16, 2011 - 11:50 pm No Comments

Carlos heads out into the rainforest with his umbrella made of leaves to see some animals. Once he gets there he can’t see anything, so he leaves his umbrella on the ground and begins to climb a tree for a better view. One by one animals of all shapes and sizes end up in Carlos’ umbrella. Children can use the pictures on the sides to predict who just might end up in the umbrella next as well as being able to see what Carlos is doing while his umbrella on the ground is filling up. One of my Sunday school students must be studying the rainforest at school because he was telling me ALL about this book today and since we are in the middle of our Jan Brett author study I knew exactly which book he was talking about. 🙂
