Grandpa and Thomas and the Green Umbrella by Pamela Allen
*CBCA Book of the Year: Early Childhood
This beautiful picture book for the very young follows on from the CBC Award-winning Grandpa and Thomas and again depicts the special relationship between grandchild and grandfather. This time, when Grandpa and Thomas go to the beach they swim, picnic, slide down the sand-dunes and build a sand-car. Then the weather turns stormy and the two shelter in the car, under the green umbrella, until the storm passes. Pamela Allen's picture books are ideal for showing students how rhythm, repetition and humour can be used to create a successful and engaging text. It is wonderful to share and read aloud with very small children, as the words encourage their active participation.
