Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The perfect book for a rainy day (obviously) but also for an art lesson, a lazy afternoon, or a quiet classroom, Yellow Umbrella tells the wordless story of one umbrella's morning journey. Accompanied by a CD of original and evocative piano music, this is a book meant to be enjoyed by all people, connecting us through music and art and transcending language and cultural barriers. Readers, "lookers" and listeners of all ages will love this slice of a rainy day.

Review:

"...The umbrellas (and joyful hues) multiply with each successive spread, until a rainbow of galoshes and bumbershoots approaches the school building. Composer Dong II Sheen gracefully glides between rhythms throughout the 15 tracks (a deep, persistent beat accompanies paintings that include a train, jaunty notes indicate a sprinkle of rain in other scenes), maintaining an overall happy tone." Publishers Weekly

Table of Contents

Bookworm10, September 3, 2011 (view all comments by Bookworm10)
Magical children's picture book with colorful pictures and no words. The reader follows umbrellas on a journey, and at the end, you find out who is under the umbrellas and where they are going. The book is wordless, but the coolest part is the included CD soundtrack, which has beautiful piano music that follows the story page by page. On the page where the umbrellas cross a train track, the music sounds like a train, while on another page, it sounds like rain. The book and CD together are happy, fun, and magical. It won the NY Times Best Illustrated Book Award and was originally published in South Korea. Gift Quality!
