By Amy June Bates and Juniper Bates
This book was co-written by Amy June Bates and her seventh-grade daughter, Juniper. This book is an inclusive story that demonstrates everyone being welcomed. The big umbrella provides shelter and “loves to gather people in.” The umbrella keeps growing to welcome a diverse group, and it doesn’t matter if they are “tall, hairy, or plaid.” This story can lead into discussions about being kind, same, different, feelings, and a variety of other topics.
