Little Cloud by Eric Carle

Little Cloud by Eric Carle is one of Dot’s favourite reads.

To a child, clouds are not just clouds? They can change into a rabbit…clown..anything under the sun. Just imagine.

Before we read aloud, I would bring her to the window where she could have full view of the sky. “Where are the clouds?” and she would point at the white, fluffy clouds floating in the blue sky.

As we read “Little Cloud”, I would stop intermittently and ask her what she has discovered in the sky and the clouds. She would say ‘rabbit’, ‘shark’, ‘bird’, ‘hat’…

One day, God sent a pair of eagles soaring freely in the clear blue sky just in front of us. What a delightful sight!

It has been raining lately. The rainy season is a good time to share to her that God made water in the sky in the form of clouds. When the clouds come together and turn grey, it means it is going to rain soon. She also learns how to sing “Rain, rain, go away”.

We did a simple craft by cutting the white cotton pads into any shape she wanted and pasted them onto a blue paper.

There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.  ~G.K. Chesterton

Would love to learn more from those who have done Little Cloud fun and creative activities. Just link up your post under comment.
