Bought this for my 9 year old granddaughter. She noticed some clouds looked like animals and I was thrilled to find this book. She tells me she loves it and reads it o ver and over again. Great for the developing imagination.

Great book. We give them as gifts.

Our only disappointment was that one of the books was cracked near the spine.

This book was a library copy that was never checked out, therefore, in essence it is a brand new book. I have taken up cloud watching and this is an excellent book for the subject.

This is a wonderful little book from The Cloud Appreciation Society, one that has absolutely no goals but just to enjoy clouds! I love it and this book is charming. The photos are beautiful and from all over the world.
