Our March book of the month is The Elephant’s Umbrella by Laleh Jaffari and Ali Khodai (illus)
Elephant is very proud of his umbrella and is happy to share its shelter with other animals. One windy day the umbrella is swept away and is found by a leopard and later a bear. These animals don’t want to share the umbrella, they have much more selfish ideas. The umbrella decides she wants to find the elephant again because he is a much more helpful owner and asks the wind to help. A beautifully illustrated simple story which can be a good opportunity to talk about what it means to be generous and kind, just like elephant in the story.
