Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

With shades of Charles G. Shaw's classic It Looked Like Spilt Milk, this tale introduces a cloud that changes itself into a handful of shapes (spreads feature a cloud plane, shark and trees against a blue background). Ages 2-6. (Mar.)
Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1?A familiar story line involving the whimsical world of ever-changing shapes in the sky. Little Cloud drifts away from his wispy friends and entertains himself by changing into a variety of forms?a lamb, an airplane, a shark, a clown, etc.?before joining the others to form one big cloud that rains. Charles Shaw's It Looked Like Spilt Milk (HarperCollins, 1947) explores a similar theme. While the concept is not unique, the style is definitely Carle's own. His trademark painted cut-paper collages are eye-catching and appealing. Children will enjoy the simple text and the colorful illustrations.?Kathy Mitchell, Gadsden Co. Public Library, Quincy, FL

Format: Hardcover
I normally love the Eric Carle books. My son usually loves them as well. This book is not my favorite, nor is it my son's favorite. I don't feel this is a good representation of his work.
The pictures are very cute and the idea is very imaginative.
However, the story itself is very clunky and is a bit much for a toddler to sit through. We just look at the pictures and don't try to really read the words.

This is a cute and fun book. I don't usually choose Eric Carle books, but this is one of the best books I've read to my almost-2 year old this year. Even my 5 year old likes it. Fun, imaginative, and we really like the little face on Little Cloud in the beginning of the story. This small/medium board book size is a plus, too, easy for little hands.

Right after reading this book just once, my daughter was outside telling me all the different things the clouds looked like! This book really stimulates the imagination. The simple pictures and verse make it a great bed-time book for the little ones. It has quickly become one of my daughter's "must-have" going to bed books.

A great book for the imagination. It inspired us to go outside and see what shapes our "Little Clouds" were becoming.

A book that leaves you with options... Sept. 13 2005
By Angie Tilley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book by Eric Carle is a simple book that I believe could be used many different ways. You could use this book in weather themes, during a cloud unit, or to stretch the imagination.

You could follow this book with an activity in which your children do their own cloud making, possibly out of cotton balls.

I think that this book is fun and I really enjoy the illustrations. I would definitely suggest having this book as a part of your classroom library.
