  • Umbrella Summer made me cry in more than one spot. But it made me laugh, too. A number of the characters, including Annie, are funny. Like when Annie's best friend Rebecca's father tells the girls to play with words, so they act out "Goldilocks and the Three Proboscises." Or when Annie and Rebecca scheme to get inside a new neighbor's home, only to have Mrs. Finch see right through them (and, fortunately, find them amusing).

    Umbrella Summer is a book with sadness in it, but it's also funny and true-to-life. There's a bit of a nostalgic feel to it - kids on bikes playing in the neighborhood, with computers only playing a token role. Definitely a book to give to kids who like a book that makes them cry, but also one to try on kids who like to laugh.
