The cloud book is a great go to book when teaching about the different types of clouds. The illustrations help children see the way different clouds look. It also uses a lot of comparisons such as a cauliflower. It also explains weather patterns. The illustrations and content are great for grades 1st and beyond. ( )

Easy to read, and since clouds are almost always around I think it's great for children to learn more about them. I had gotten this as one of my RIF (Reading is Fundamental) books as an elementary student. I still love it as an adult. ( )

This book is an informational book that is set up in a story. It tells about the different types of clouds. It also tells about the different sayings that are used to predict the weather.

Personal Reaction:
I thought this was a great book. I think it would really help an elementary student learn about all the different types of clouds and what the types produce weather wise.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. Makes clouds using blue construction paper and cotton balls.
2. Discuss clouds and their functions

This is a fictional book, which discusses the variety of clouds. The book goes into depth about some legends that have to do with the clouds. The book also describes the different types of clouds that we see in our every day experiences with weather. The legends are used to help students remember which type of cloud is which. This is a great way to show students what happens in the earth’s atmosphere. ( )

This book is better for younger readers than the Gail Gibbons Weather Words book, but it still gives the information in an easy-to-read text. ( )
