Seems like I am not the only one that believed bumbershoot was British for umbrella. In my pursuit of qualifying quirky words for children’s artwork I came across an article titled Cheerio, Bumbershoot! The word is not actually British for umbrella, by author Ben Yagoda.http://slate.me/1RgEG0i
The article is an amusingly edifying read that reconfirmed my thought that bumbershoot not only qualifies as a quirky word for kids it’s also fun to say.
I chose the traditional alphabet theme for this unexpected trio of art words. My intention is to engage, motivate and educate children of all ages. Enjoy!
