In Every Cloud has a Silver Lining, author Sally Saffer takes readers into the life of the Ramos family and how they are in the process of bringing young Ricky into their family. Ricky's grandmother in Mexico is no longer able to take care of him and it would be best if he lives with the Ramos family. While Mr. and Mrs. Ramos already have three children, they are excited for this thirteen-year-old boy to be added to their loving family. They arrive at the airport, so excited to see Ricky and, while there, Mr. Ramos states: "It appears to be true that every cloud does have a silver lining." Young Carlos looks up at his father and acknowledges that he never knew that there was silver inside clouds. This allows Mr. Ramos to explain this old saying and the purpose behind it. Could it be that we are used to making statements without helping others around us better understand the purpose of what those statements mean?
Sally Saffer also does the illustrations and paints a well-rounded picture to help the reader visualize the meaning that has stumped Carlos. Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining is a wonderfully written book to help explain the principle that behind every dark or difficult situation there is a silver lining or a better time ahead. An awesome book and an excellent way of explaining this lesson.
