Little Cloud

I am remembering the days when I used to look up in the sky and tried to imagine animals or objects the cloud formations resembled. It is one of those child-like activities adults should engage in every now and then.

Little Cloud by Eric Carle is just the picture book to help spark your child's interest before heading outside on a cloudy day to imagine the sky away.

"Little Cloud changed into an airplane. Little Cloud often saw airplanes flying through the clouds."

In addition to imagining what the clouds resemble, you can discuss how the clouds are often moving and changing sometimes very quickly when it is windy or stormy or very slowly. If your child is older, you can also discuss the different types of clouds (if you know them!)
