Review quote

"Scary shadows, friends that don't share, shyness, moving, and such everyday childhood issues as wet pants, a lost tooth, and a parent's rushing them. No worry can last under a love umbrella...Colpoys' striking illustrations, which combine an earth palette with day-glo highlights, effectively show love umbrellas both imagined and real."
--Kirkus Reviews

"This is a book that has it all-a beautiful message with amazing illustrations. This story is all about the "love umbrella" that someone has for another person...We see children experiencing loneliness at being left out on the playground, sadness because of a broken toy, nervous about an upcoming event, embarrassed that they wet their pants, and scared because of a bad dream...It reminds me of The Kissing Hand in that a loved one is reminding a child that they are there for them and they should never feel alone...[A] great tool to talk about feelings."
--Youth Services Book Review

"When life gets hard or scary, there is always room under the love umbrella to feel safe and adored...[A] sweetly comforting story."
--School Library Journal

"With a comforting lilt, Bell narrates a message of unshakable connectedness and belonging...[A]n ageless reminder, tenderly composed."
--Publishers Weekly

"A sweet and beautifully illustrated book about love and family."
--Baby Librarians

"Contemporary yet classic-feeling illustrations, a simple and resonant message. Charming!"
--Jessica Peterson White, Bookseller Review, Content Book Store
