Under the Love Umbrella is a celebration of the enduring love that surrounds our children, wherever they are in the world. Inspired by the rhythm of the New York subway's L-train, the gentle rhyming text - accompanied by beautiful, vintage inspired illustrations - draws out the small things that can loom large in a little person's life, from big dogs to lost teeth, and from forgotten hats to friends who won't share. Whatever the troubles, the comfort of our love umbrella is always there, and parents and children will delight in this visual representation of the bond they share. This is a perfect gift book for new parents and babies, as well as for children embarking on big changes and new adventures, who may benefit from this lovely reminder of the permanence of love.'
