An adorable rhyming story about acceptance and working together can be found in Nimbus, the Rain Cloud by Sandra Barnes.
Nimbus wants to play with the cumulus clouds, but they shoo him away because the children won’t play in the rain. After the children sing, “Rain, Rain, Go Away,” Nimbus is sure the cumulus clouds are right. But once Nimbus disappears, there is no more rain, which causes all kinds of other problems.
Licensed clinical and forensic psychologist Sandra Barnes channeled her passion for multiculturalism and helping young people into a sweet story about the importance of appreciating our uniqueness, accepting others, and the joy of working together. This book teaches an important lesson in a nice way. The story is followed by a note to parents, discussion questions, and ways for readers to apply the story to their lives.
Courtney Smith created the artwork for Nimbus, the Rain Cloud. From the deep greens of the grass to the brown rabbit sipping from blue puddles to the white, blue, and black of the sky as the clouds cool the earth, each illustration brought this story to life for me.
If you like cute stories with meaningful messages, Nimbus, the Rain Cloud is an excellent choice.
