The Big Umbrella by AmyJune Bates - ESSENTIAL

Bates, Amy June The Big Umbrella, with Juniper Bates.  PICTURE BOOK.  Simon, 2018.  $17.  9781534406582

It’s raining outside and the big umbrella couldn’t be happier.  No matter how tall, how small, how many legs – there is room for everyone to shelter under its generous space.

I knew when I saw this that it is  an excellent teaching book – and the co-authors bring it around masterfully.  Grab this as a great classroom discussion on inclusion and an example of metaphor. And it is just adorable.
