What do you see when you gaze at a cloud?

I wonder . . . Can you tell me? I'd love to know!

Imagination is a way of thinking and creating, drawing from what we see and feel. The Cloud Book of Wonder offers an interactive experience for grown-ups and children of any age who enjoy cloud gazing and storytelling, daydreaming and imagining. When a child looks at the sky, will they see a rocking horse, ripples in a pond, or a cloud named Cirrus or Cumulus? Together parents, grandparents, teachers, and children may create an activity of wondering and learning. Looking up at clouds will never be the same again.

About the Authors . . . Christina M. Brandt is the proud grandma of Layla and Shay Brandt. The president of ReImagine Possibilities, Inc., Christina found herself literally writing a new chapter in her own life and career, so with her photography and her granddaughters' imaginations, together they daydreamed and imagined and shared stories until The Cloud Book of Wonder came into being—and now, with the clouds in the sky and the clouds in this book, they hope others will be inspired to daydream and imagine and tell stories too! The Cloud Book of Wonder is Christina's first book.

Layla Brandt enjoys sharing what she sees when she gazes at clouds with her grandma, playing with her cousin Shay, dancing, and baking. The Cloud Book of Wonder is also her first book.

Shay Brandt enjoys looking at the clouds, spending time with her cousin Layla, creating art, and playing princess. The Cloud Book of Wonder is her first book too!
