Little Cloud

Pick number 2 in my one book every day list:

Little Cloud by Eric Carle

In Little Cloud, a deceptively simple book, beloved artist Eric Carle celebrates the possibilities of imagination with textured collages of sky-blue and white.

Followup activity:

Whenever I read this story I usually do two activities to go along with it.  First, we go outside to lay on the grass on a cloudy day and try to find our own shapes in the clouds.  I also give the children blue paper and white paint so they can create their own shapes.
