Sora and the Cloud by Felicia Hoshino, translated by Akiko Hisa. Sora is a little boy who loves to climb. One day he climbs a tree and catches a ride on a cloud. The cloud floats away and takes Sora way up into the sky. They soar with kites and airplanes. The cloud is soft and fluffy; a very comfortable place to nap, so Sora rests his head, and dreams of earthbound things, like splashing in puddles and digging in sand. The cloud returns to the tree and promises Sora future adventures with the wink on an eye. This beautifully illustrated book is written in both English and Japanese, and includes notes to readers in the back to help explain the cultural significances mentioned in the book. Dream Big, Read… on a cloud, way up high in the sky with Sora… or in your imagination. See this book listed in our catalog
