The Umbrella

by Jan Brett

Putnam Juvenile 2004

Ages: 5 to 7

Topic: Informational Books

In a story format, Jan Brett gives us a glimpse of the life in the Monteverde Rainforest in Costa Rica where animals and birds appear and disappear, especially the resplendent quetzal with his tail plumes.

The end papers with animals peeking through the lush verdure are a visual feast.
