Mother’s Umbrella by Marjan van Zeyl captures the childhood mood of snuggling close under the umbrella in a crinkly rain suit or jacket, feeling the damp air, the cooler temperatures, the pitter patter sound and feel of raindrops on the umbrella top, the rain puddles forming all around.

In this childhood memory, rain is mysterious and unfamiliar at first as a new world forms all around because of it and a new playground evolves afterward of splashy puddles, tiny street streams, paper boats and stick boats with make shift sails, mud pies, salamanders and slugs, even a newt may pass by if we are lucky; these water creatures we rarely see that are so fascinating to a child.
