U is for...
As I was searching for a u word for ABC Wednesday, I discovered the word "umbrage". I already knew its most common definition: offense; annoyance; displeasure, as in to take umbrage. But I found it also has the meaning shade or shadows, as cast by trees.
There, maybe you just learned something!
This picture was taken from Lost by one of my favorite author/illustrators, David McPhail. His books have many humorous, dear touches that make the book tolerable and even enjoyable to read over and over and over again when it happens to be the favorite of a toddler.
