Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
A young girl looks out the window at the snow-covered ground as snowflakes fall, but then she dresses in her bathing suit, flippers, and sunglasses. Before she leaves the house, she also takes an umbrella. In this wordless story, we can see that it must be magical. For when she opens it, grass grows beneath her feet, and wherever she walks a path of green follows. She floats under it on a pond, then stretches out under sunshine. Snow gives way to spring and summer across the pages. Then we see her at the window again. This time she sets out with the umbrella among the flowers, muffled up for winter. And a path of snow follows her amid the trees. She can skate on the frozen pond and build a snowman. On the last double page she sees rain through the window. "What will the magic Un-brella do with that?" we wonder. Cut paper illustrations lend themselves to a range of decorative page layouts, while creating hundreds of snowflakes and many-petaled flowers. The trees seem cut from fanciful fabrics, as is the appealing heroine's bedspread. The double-page scenes are carefully designed to increase anticipation as we view the shapes and patterns.

    Don't pass this gem up!

    I am a "Dialogic reader" to my kids. Dialogic reading is basically reading a story through conversation. This lets kids run the show. "Reading" a book dialogically is asking a series of open ended questions about what you are looking at together. This is a proven reading technique that bolsters reading comprehension.

    That is why I found Un Brella to be such a gem! The book has no text and let's the readers just unfold their own story. The juxtaposition of contrary ideas in this book offer almost endlessly fun opportunities to discuss what they are onbserving. My son laughs heartily at the silliness of the little girl with the magic umbrella.

    This is a must have for any home library. I eagerly await for more offerings from Scott Franson.
