Description


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.

Praise For…


"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
