At last! Here's a brand-new board book edition of an Eric Carle picture book that's a favorite with littlest cloud gazers everywhere! Little Cloud likes to stand out from the crowd. When all the other clouds drift up, he goes his own way, changing shapes to become a sheep, an airplane, a shark and a funny clown. It's all lots of fun, but so is playing with friends. So this time, Little Cloud joins the crowd, gathering with his pals into one giant cloud. And then they rain! In Little Cloud, Eric Carle celebrates the possibilities of imagination with textured collages of sky-blue and white in a story that will encourage the youngest child to read clouds. Eric Carle lives in Northampton and Charlemont, MA.

Editorial Reviews

"Carle's luminous collage art features broad, swirling strokes reminiscent of finger painting. As minimalist as the text, these images may well inspire kids to cast more creative glances at the sky." --Publishers Weekly

"Simplicity itself....A perfect story-hour choice [that] segues nicely into a trip outside to look at the sky." --Booklist

Employee Review

A great book to read to pre-schoolers on a rainy day. It's about daydreaming and using your imagination. Who hasn't looked up at clouds and imagined they were sheep, rabbits or even clowns like in this book? The story involves a small cloud who drifts away from the rest of the clouds but, as Carle writes, "... in the end, with some coaxing, Little Cloud does what clouds are supposed to do" and joins the group. After I've done an announcement for storytime, my co-workers ask me if I read anything otherthan Little Cloud!
