Grandma Fina takes a long walk through town, meeting neighbors and relatives who notice how tattered her umbrella is. Each one then gives her a new umbrella for her birthday, but she gives them all away to her elderly friends. Intended as an early reader, this accurately translated bilingual picture book contains tedious repetition. Though colorful, the illustrations are also boringly the same.
