Review: Cloud Spinner (Catchpool)

Title: Cloud Spinner
Author: Catchpool
Genre: Picture Books, Fairy Tales, Kings, Nature

Pages: 32
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Ages: Kindergarten through 3rd Grade

This picture book is one of my favorites so far this year. 

From the Publisher: 
One small boy has a special gift-he can weave cloth from the clouds: gold in the early morning with the rising sun, white in the afternoon, and crimson in the evening. He spins just enough cloth for a warm scarf. But when the king sees the boy's magnificent cloth, he demands cloaks and gowns galore. "It would not be wise," the boy protests. "Your majesty does not need them!" But spin he must-and soon the world around him begins to change.

This is a great tale on taking care of the Earth and it's resources without being preachy. The illustrations beautifully compliment the story. Elementary teachers will definitely want this one on their shelves!
