Ideas for using this book in classroom or library and/or brief notes on curriculum connections/content learning standards/Common Core, etc.:

  • Discussion — clouds, how they are formed, the water cycle, etc.  Discuss types of clouds.  If you were a cloud scientist like the ones in the book, what kind of cloud would you design?
  • Discuss wordless books.  Make copies of the pages (1-2 pages of the book per student), and have them work first individually, then together, to put words to the book.  Pair with other wordless books.

Special features included (if applicable) — index; timeline; author’s notes; further reading; etc.
