What do you see when you look at clouds?

Two curious bunnies enjoy watching clouds go by. But when they look at the sky, they each see something completely different! While one bunny likes to use his imagination and sees cotton candy or whipped cream, the other bunny can only see the science behind them. Together they learn that cloud watching is much more fun when they can see it through each other's eyes.

With extensive back matter about the many kinds of clouds and the water cycle, celebrated author and illustrator Deborah Freedman once again combines the educational with the whimsical, while introducing young readers to two irresistible characters who see the power of possibility.

Praise For…

★ "Cirrus-ly great." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ "The story is grounded in science and will send children outside to look up, inspired by what they have read. A must have for primary library collections" --School Library Journal, starred review

"Creative imagination and scientific intelligence need not be exclusive, suggests this gently educational book that resists simple caricature." —Publishers Weekly

"This is a cleverly packaged science lesson that will surely bring trivia-focused kids, animal lovers, and aspiring meteorologists (or more specifically, nephologists) together. . . a perfect primer before a cloud-gazing nature walk or, better yet, for a long road trip when “I Spy” has run its course." --BCCB

"Clever and well-executed, this tale is perfect for weather studies or story times." --Booklist
