Cloudette is a precious story about a cloud who thinks that she is too small. She wants to make a difference like the other clouds, but doesn’t feel like she can. Then one day, she finds herself a frog in need and uses her “cloud powers” to help the frog. This story is a great read aloud as it incorporates idioms and scientific vocabulary into a fun and meaningful story.

2) A Nonfiction Informational Book About Clouds : How does a Cloud Become a Thunderstorm?

This informational book is a great read aloud to model the skills necessary to understand a nonfiction book. There is a glossary included with TONS of important vocabulary terms. Furthermore, there are connections to both Social Studies AND your electricity unit in this book! Click HERE to check it out.
