I love this short story. I would use this book when my students are learning about weather and clouds. I would have my students do an activity where they would choose to be any type of cloud. For example, the shape could be a dog, transformer, tree, etc. They would complete the sentence, "If I were a cloud, I would be...". After they write the sentence, they would illustrate a picture of their cloud. I would encourage my students to use their imagination when doing this activity.
