Excerpt taken from Amazon.


A lonely young girl wandering through a thrift shop discovers a green umbrella. She decides to take it home, and with her imagination they go on many adventures together. As the girl grows older, she slowly outgrows the umbrella and puts it away.

One day, a young boy finds a little green umbrella in the back of an old closet. Using his imagination, the boy and the umbrella embark on fun and adventures for many years.

Many years down the road, an old woman finds a little green umbrella in the closet and decides to go for a walk. She meets a young man, and they walk on together, each remembering their own childhood adventures with the umbrella.


My Little Green Umbrella is a cute short story for kids. It describes the circle of life in an imaginative and entertaining way. The plot and wording are designed in a manner fitting for young children.

I found this book easy to read and just right for a quick bedtime story. The illustrations were very nice. The colors and images fit the narrative perfectly. The drawings were entertaining and beautiful to view.

Currently, this title is available for free with Kindle Unlimited.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
