By the door there is an umbrella. It is big. It is so big that when it starts to rain there is room for everyone underneath. It doesn't matter if you are tall. Or plaid. Or hairy. It doesn't matter how many legs you have. Don't worry that there won't be enough room under the umbrella.

A Storytime Favorites pick. Discuss whether this Big Umbrella will be big enough for everyone as you and your child see more and more people come along to get out of the rain.

Simple, sweet and tender story of good nature, kindness, goodwill, goodness, niceness and compassion. Helping our community makes us Big!. Do what is right, no matter what people think. Beautiful illustrations!.

Ages 3-7
A nice, quick read about inclusion and belonging, with beautiful watercolour illustrations. The short sentences make this a good choice for beginning independent readers, but is also a great story to be shared.
