I loved this book. It probably helps that I’ve been fascinated with clouds my entire life, and especially loved them when I was young.

But this book is so sweet, and funny and whimsical. And the illustrations are so pretty and cute, and all the little funny asides add to the story. My favorite part was the scene where Cloudette got the impression the new other “clouds” had no interest in getting to know her, but I was fond of every single page.

There is also a fine message here about how being small doesn’t preclude one from making important contributions.

This is an okay book to read aloud to young children, but I’d especially recommend it for beginning readers; they will enjoy reading ALL the text portions as they view the pictures, and they will be more likely to “get” some of the amusing parts, and the inspiring parts too, and the science lesson as well.
