Pour Nimbus! is a children's picture book written by S. Blaise Juncaloe and illustrated by Harriet Rodis. It tells the story of Nimbus, a cloud that brought rain to the town of Paradiso. One day, residents of the town complain about the rain when Nimbus tries to play with them during a festival. This makes Nimbus sad, unappreciated, and unloved, leading him to retreat to the sea, leaving the town dry and dusty. The crops turn brown, the animals are thirsty, and the people begin to regret chasing Nimbus away. They start to plead for his return, but Nimbus is still mad. His weather friends, the wind, the sun, and swirly clouds, join in the plea, hoping to change Nimbus’ mind, but will he forgive the people of Paradiso and nourish their land again?

Pour Nimbus! is a heartwarming and educational tale with beautiful themes of forgiveness, empathy, and the interconnectedness of all living things. It has a metaphorical lesson about the rain cycle, highlighting the different purposes that the wind, sun, and clouds play in rain formation. It also teaches children to be grateful for the little things we take for granted. S. Blaise Juncaloe does a great job of presenting these lessons in a way that will resonate with young readers. Her use of a rhyming tone adds a rhythmic flow to the story and makes it engaging to read. The colorful illustrations bring the characters and scenery to life, drawing the young reader into the story and helping them relate to the characters. I enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend sharing it with your children.
