Meet Cloud! Follow along as she moves, transforms, precipitates, and more in this charming and humorous portrayal of the water cycle.

The lifecycle of our protagonist, Cloud, is delightfully and sparsely narrated in nine short chapters that follow the stages of the water cycle. Young readers will immediately fall for this wide-eyed puff, and welcome facts along with humor and personality as they bask in the accomplishment of breezing through each chapter.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In what might be the most adorable depiction of the water cycle ever, this endearing picture book follows Cloud's journey from water droplets to sky fluff. The cheery illustrations anthropomorphize the story's major players, pasting smiling faces onto a lake, the sun, water droplets, the wind, and clouds. Each stage of the water cycle is presented in its own chapter, beginning with the formation of Cloud the cloud, the happy by-product of Sun heating up the water of a lake. Chapter 2 sees the arrival of Wind, who "loves to blow warm air to cold places" and sends Cloud scooting through the sky. Successive chapters tackle weather events, including snow, fog, rain, a thunderstorm, and a rainbow, until Cloud arrives back at the lake where the story began. Hodgson utilizes graphic novel conventions throughout the book, using panels and speech balloons to show Cloud's exciting journey. This book is aimed at very young learners, as it successfully conveys basic concepts without using scientific language--and not only that, it makes its lessons fun!"
