‘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’
Written in the form of a gentle poem, the book introduces the idea of a ‘love umbrella’: an invisible source of protection, love and comfort which is always there, up in the stars. When you’re feeling sad, shy or lonely, things don’t go quite as planned, or times are troubling (the author lists bad dreams, smashed toys, lost teeth, wet pants, and big worries amongst other things) the love umbrella is always there for you, wherever you might be, to show that you are being thought of.
Beautifully illustrated by Allison Colpoys in a zingy palette of fluorescent colours, there are plenty of different challenging scenarios depicted that children should enjoy chatting about.
