Under the Love Umbrella by Davina Bell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Whatever you fear, come close my dear
You’re tucked in safe for always here
And I will never not be near
Because of our love umbrella
Under the Love Umbrella is a really brightly coloured book, which the children in my class loved. The story is told through rhyme, which the children picked up on an enjoyed.
I found that it could be a little deep for 5 and 6 year olds, but they surprised me and were able to discuss the book after.
This is all about support and who you would have under your love umbrella, we discussed this as a class and we decided anyone you care for could be under it. It was a really lovely story to share with the children, perfect for those PSHE lessons or just to discuss emotional matters that could have come up.
The illustrations are lovely, the children enjoyed searching the pages to find the umbrellas and were excited when they found them.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
