Perfect for fans of Amelie, this is a charming story about the power of friendship, love and pink polka dots to turn rainy days into sunny ones and sadness into joy.
When it's bright outside, Adele is the heart of her community, greeting everyone who comes into her cafe with arms wide open. But when it rains, she can't help but stay at home inside, under the covers. Because Adele takes such good care of her friends and customers, one of them decides to take care of her too, and piece by piece leaves her little gifts that help her find the joy in a gray, rainy day. Along with cute-as-a-button illustrations, The Pink Umbrella celebrates thoughtful acts of friendship.
This book called to me with its bright cover and adorable illustrations. This artist also did the illustrations for another children's book that I really enjoyed recently and this one did not disappoint either. The book is about a woman that runs a cafe and loves it. She has regular customers that she loves to share her days with but one thing she really dislikes is rainy days.
Weird things start to appear at the cafe all for rainy weather and she finds herself confused and interested in what is happening and who left the items. The book is an adorable tale about love and it was beautifully done. While I think the colors and the story is wonderful as a children's story, I think it will also touch the hearts of the parents reading it as well.
