As a child, did you ever lie outside on a warm, sunny day and study the clouds in the sky? Brian Jay’s picture book Let’s Find Funny Faces! Clouds and the Imagination Series brings back my childhood memories of lying on my back, studying the changing features of the clouds in the sky. It’s amazing how many different images you can find in the clouds: funny faces, sad faces, animals, and so much more. You don’t need an app or any electronic device. All it takes is a little imagination and a few clouds in an otherwise clear blue sky.
Brian Jay’s Let's Find Funny Faces! is the second book in his series, highlighting the joy and imaginative skill of finding images in the clouds. The color photographs of the clouds are spellbinding and perhaps will inspire young readers to see different images than those seen by the author. The rhyming verse that leads the reader through the illustrations adds to the imaginative jingle. Each page includes a photograph of the actual cloud with a manipulated image to illustrate what the author sees. The quirky caption that follows will bring a few smiles to readers' faces, young and old alike. The imagination inspiration may be obvious in this gem of a book, but what also struck me was the underlying influence of teaching young people the power of patience. One doesn’t go outside and suddenly see funny faces in the clouds; one must sit or lie outside and wait and look and study what is seen. Too often, today’s young people only want to do things in a hurry. Cloud gazing is a slow, soothing activity. I loved this book.
