My goal was for children to notice different kinds of clouds and learn the names of 3 kinds.
This was 1/4 page book.
A long time ago most of the books that I made with children had longer, usually rhyming text on each page. Back then I was trying to put lots of information into the books. Later my goal for most books was to provided reading practice, as well as reinforcing our study of a particular subject so I changed to much simpler text, larger fonts and big spaces between words. But for this cloud book – I wanted the children (and their parents) to learn the name of 3 clouds and remember how to recognize them, so I left the sentences.
This page says: Cirrus clouds are way up high, light and fluffy in the sky.
Cumulus clouds are puffy and fat, they’re low in the sky and their bottoms are flat.
Stratus clouds are low and gray, we often wish they’d go away.
I used dryer lint for the gray clouds!
