Item Description...
Little Cloud floats through the sky, passing the time by reshaping himself into semblances of sheep, airplanes, sharks, and funny clowns, until a cluster of other clouds invites him to join in a rain-making party. Reprint.

Publishers Description
The clouds drift across the bright blue sky--all except one. Little Cloud trails behind. He is busy changing shapes to become a fluffy sheep, a zooming airplane, and even a clown with a funny hat. Eric Carle's trademark collages will make every reader want to run outside and discover their very own little cloud.

Little Cloud  Oct 30, 2006
Little Cloud is one of Carle's more recent books. Carle started illustrating and writing books in the late 1960s. Of the Carle books I've read there are only two that I don't enjoy: The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Very Greedy Snake as both are focused so heavily on gluttony.Little Cloud instead teaches through example the importance of being an individual and being a contributing member of a group.

Until the end, each page has a different shape that Little Cloud has created on his own. There's an airplane, a hat, and a variety of other shapes that children will easily recognize. In the end, his hat joins up with the other clouds who have together formed a clown.
Used Book  Oct 3, 2005
Average condition for a used book and with shipping the price, the total was so, so. The delivery took weeks!
A book that leaves you with options...  Sep 14, 2005
This book by Eric Carle is a simple book that I believe could be used many different ways. You could use this book in weather themes, during a cloud unit, or to stretch the imagination.

You could follow this book with an activity in which your children do their own cloud making, possibly out of cotton balls.

I think that this book is fun and I really enjoy the illustrations. I would definitely suggest having this book as a part of your classroom library.
Not my Favorite Eric Carle book  Sep 23, 2001
I normally love the Eric Carle books. My son usually loves them as well. This book is not my favorite, nor is it my son's favorite. I don't feel this is a good representation of his work.

The pictures are very cute and the idea is very imaginative.

However, the story itself is very clunky and is a bit much for a toddler to sit through. We just look at the pictures and don't try to really read the words.

Wonderful for the imagination!  Aug 28, 2001
Right after reading this book just once, my daughter was outside telling me all the different things the clouds looked like! This book really stimulates the imagination. The simple pictures and verse make it a great bed-time book for the little ones. It has quickly become one of my daughter's "must-have" going to bed books.
