This is a sweet little book that is just right for children around 4-6, when they start wondering about the world around them. In anyone else’s hands, I think the chances are good that this subject would have been treated the way most “storybooks” bent on teaching – dry, dry, and not really for children at all. The Cloud Book captures the beauty and wonder of the billowy puffs that float far above us and brings to life the folklore and imagery clouds have evoked throughout the ages. Instead of just conveying facts, The Cloud Book captivates the imagination – children and adults will be pondering, noticing, and enjoying clouds for years and years after the last reading.
