The Pink Umbrella by Amélie Callot, illustrated by Geneviève Godbout

// BOOK REVIEW //

Thank you to Tundra Books for this beautiful, complimentary review copy!

"For the villagers, the cafe is a refuge, a small lantern always lit... The cafe is the heart of the village. And Adele is the heart of the cafe. She is the village's sun - lively, sweet and sparkling." - The Pink Umbrella

It all begins with a pair of pink rain boots… This sweet story with absolutely adorable illustrations will capture your imagination and quite possibly leave you with a desire to add a pink, polk-dot umbrella to your wardrobe. Younger readers (ages 4-6) will enjoy the face-value of the story while older readers (ages 6-9) will be more likely to understand the themes of the story that center around the importance of friendship, community and showing little acts of kindness. Most importantly, I enjoyed the story’s emphasis on finding the good in what may originally be interpreted as a bad situation.
