Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa Eskra | 1/29/2014

    " My son enjoyed it, but in my opinion this book pales in comparison to Eric Carle's other children's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 1/27/2014

    " This is a great story to use for an imagination program. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misty | 1/20/2014

    " Who loves to look at clouds and the shapes they make? I know I do! In this book there is a little cloud that gets bigger, makes a bunch of different shapes, moves around, and makes rain. This would be a great book for introducing a science lesson on clouds and the rain cycle. It would also be a good way to get students outside and looking for shapes in the clouds themselves. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caitlin Sabers | 1/17/2014

    " This book can be used to discuss clouds, weather, geography and traveling, and imagination. Little cloud shapes himself into all different things. Not only can fun craft projects be done with this, but kids could be taken out side to find a cloud shaped like something else and could write about it or draw pictures of what their cloud wants to be. This book would also be a great Engage in a 5E because it does not explicitly discuss science. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany Brewer | 1/15/2014

    " This book is effective to introduce a science lesson on clouds. The illustrations are engaging for the students. This book provides a text to world connection. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamara the Librarian | 1/9/2014

    " Cloud takes the shape of some of his favorite things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa | 1/9/2014

    " a cloud dreams of being somehting eles. collage art work, good for teaching about weather "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 1/1/2014

    " This was yet another Eric Carle book that I found lacking in story. It is cute to talk about how clouds can look like other objects, and my toddler liked naming the shapes the little cloud morphed in to, but it wasn't very fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luana | 12/19/2013

    " This book is ideal for Pre-K to Kindergarten to get them thinking about clouds. Where do we see clouds? What shape does it have? I would use this in the engage portion of a 5E lesson plan. After reading this book, we would go outside and look at the shapes of the clouds. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 11/25/2013

    " A small cloud drifts away from the other clouds. His adventures are many as he changes into many different shapes of the things he sees. What fun! Eventually the rest of the clouds drift back and Little Cloud joins them once again so they can fulfill their purpose: dropping rain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 11/22/2013

    " Cute story about a much loved pastime of children of all ages. Clouds in the sky and the interesting shapes we make out. This a short quick story perfect for bedtime. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Smitheram | 11/17/2013

    " This book is about a cloud who drifts away from the rest and morphs into things that he sees (ex: a hat, a plane) and at the end of the book he goes back with the rest of the clouds to make a rainstorm. The book could be used in a weather unit. 1st grade. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Codie Gates | 10/28/2013

    " Little Cloud likes the way trees never move and stay the same. He also likes to change into things he has seen. Soon his big cloud friends come back, and they come together to make it rain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Van Pelt | 6/19/2013

    " Great jumping off point for a cloud or weather unit. So fun to see what happens with little cloud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alamoliz | 5/25/2013

    " What does little cloud want to be? Then that is what he'll be. Another great Carle book of empowerment for the littlies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 5/21/2013

    " This book tells the life of a little cloud. It can be used in a science lesson to help describe the water cycle. The will be able to see the water cycle from the point of view of a "participant" in it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucero Hernandez | 3/22/2013

    " Little cloud likes to make different shapes. After reading this book, it would be fun to allow students to go outside and use their imagination to discover shapes that they can picture in the clouds. Then have the students create those shapes on construction paper with cotton. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirei | 3/2/2013

    " Little Cloud changes into many objects in this lovely book. Finally all the clouds get together and it rains. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Retana | 2/21/2013

    " This is a great book to teach children how clouds change shapes, and it allows students to use their imagination. It would be a great book to read it aloud. Grade: K-1. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy Vance | 10/4/2012

    " Great book. Students enjoyed the pictures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri | 12/27/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yadira | 11/10/2011

    " A delightfully illustrated book about a little cloud who decides that it wants to make different shapes and objects from itself. This would be a good book to talk about clouds and the different shapes they make and maybe continue it with an field trip outside to look at the clouds. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shunta | 8/9/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 jenna nims | 6/6/2011

    " i really like how BRIGHT his illustrations are - very eye catching but simple "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 nicole | 5/20/2011

    " was a huge hit with the three-year-olds on a cloudy day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deepti | 5/13/2011

    " Joyce's simple stories keep one gripped. Wonderful collection and a great introduction to Joyce. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ori | 5/13/2011

    " Reading this was like reading something that I could have understood if I had been alive in or just after while Joyce was alive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 patrycja | 5/12/2011

    " This is collection of short stories, which I've found more tolerable to read than other Joyce works. Still, all places, emotions and names of the characters are repetitive. Not to mention how sad, unhappy and frustrated are all people in those stories. It's rather depressing. Good for one read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ridhwan | 5/12/2011

    " Kisah-kisah 'dear dirty Dublin' yang santai dan tenang. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Willeke | 5/12/2011

    " Needless to say, I am very biased when it comes to books set in Ireland, and in particular in Dublin... but Joyce is Joyce and a brilliant author who deserves to be in the top 3 of Ireland's best authors ever! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adil | 5/8/2011

    " These short stories are off the hook! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan | 5/6/2011

    " Great collection of stories, all of them were good--Eveline and The Dead were absolutely amazing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 4/30/2011

    " Joyce's writing is so good, but this honestly could have been about five stories less. I look forward to reading his novels in the near future. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean | 4/29/2011

    " the ways in which both the social interactions of daily life are portrayed as well as the human psyche of the participants were both excellent and original. The stories themselves were sometimes a bit dry for my taste, but the imagery was brilliant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 samuel | 4/23/2011

    " nice short stories about dubliners. as you might guess. like the public house scenes, and the lack of reliance on plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gretchen | 4/21/2011

    " The Dead, The Sisters and Araby are great! The rest are so-so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 4/18/2011

    " Although there are no plots to speak of, the characters are clearly described. Joyce is able to transport you to that time and place through dialogue and description.
