The Umbrella

A little dog goes flying around the world with a red umbrella in this wordless picture book. Each double page spread shows a miniature story within the larger story. At the end, a cat finds the umbrella. What will his adventure be?

Use this adventuresome book by Ingrid and Dieter Schubert to study geography (the dog flies many places that you can plot on a map), seasons and climates, unconventional uses of an object and innovation. Find more ideas here.
