I like this book because: Bias Reveal: this is the debut picture book of my longtime critique-partner Wendy Greenley! BUT, bias aside, it‘s a lovely book of self-acceptance and creativity, and was very well received by my adorable storytime gang at the bookstore! It‘s also brimming with absolutely beautiful illustrations! The kids were mesmerized!
Resources/activities: start a kid’s chapter of The Cloud Appreciation Society – find out more HERE; learn how clouds make rain and other weather; make umbrellas on popsicle sticks – see photos below
