A wonderful story of what one person (or in this case, cloud) can do to make just a tiny part of the world a better place. Cloudette is a very small cloud. The other bigger clouds like her and call her endearing names. There are advantages to being small, but Cloudette doesn't feel that she can do anything important. One day she is blown away from her home and ends up in a different place where she has no friends. Fortunately, she is able to make new friends and even prove to herself and to some other lucky creatures, that in her own little way she can do important things, too. An excellent book, cleverly illustrated. Fun for adults to read, too, as some of the dialog ("What a cute little cumulus!" and "Prodigious precipitation, pipsqueak!") is well above the level of many children's books. It's also a book that will grow with the children as they begin to understand these new words.
