No Rain Today (Clouds in the Wide Blue Sky Book 1) by Kristen Iten is an adorable story for kids. A happy little cloud was watching everything below him as he was floating by. He liked to watch the kids playing. One day he realized he was holding too much rain and he decided to share it with others. But then when he shared the rain, all the fun stopped. The happy little cloud was sad and decided not to let the rain in him fall. He became so full and heavy that he couldn't float. A little girl comes out at that time and things change, making the little cloud happy.
The story is so cute and kids will love reading about the cloud and rain. The illustrations are lively and colorful and they breathe life and movement into all the characters and scenes, making them come alive for readers. It's an excellent bedtime storybook and can be used for interactive sessions in school libraries and classrooms. The happiness of the little cloud after discovering the little girl's love for rain is tangible and it encourages readers to enjoy the weather by dressing accordingly. The author makes the lines lyrical at times with a bit of alliteration, making the rain sound beautiful. The book also conveys the message that it is not always possible to please everyone around us. The little girl and the happy little cloud capture the joy of rain effectively, making young readers want to play in the rain.
