Sometimes it can be very hard to find a good book to read to an elderly person with dementia. Children's picture books are great but it has to be the right kind. 'Cloudy' was perfect! I have read hundreds of lovely picture books to my mother, but this was the only picture book she ever was really interested in, so interested she read the opening paragraph out loud before I could do so! Pretty amazing considering she
is 92 and so sleepy most of the time!

I had this book as a child and loved it! I took my daughter to a book fair at her school last night and saw this book and it brought back all those childhood memories of reading that book. I am sure she is going to enjoy it as much as I did. It really is a great book for a child who is just begining their journy into reading and it has a great foundation for helping establish their growing imagination.

My mother read this book to my brother and I when we were little. I loved it then and I love it now! It's definitely on my top ten all time favorite childrens books. I hope it will become one of my girls favorite books as well!
