 Summary:

In this colorful book illustrated by vibrant crayon drawings, we find the Sun and the Clouds as best friends.  However, one day, they get into a tiff, and decide to never be in the sky together again.  On days when the Sun decided to be in the sky, the Earth was scorching hot and dry. On days when the Clouds decided to be in the sky, everything was dreary, damp, and cold.  Because the two were not in the sky together, there were no more rainbows.  Everything on Earth started losing its color until…a forgotten box of crayons leap out of a desk!  The crayons make it their mission to get the Sun and the Clouds back together again, and slowly rainbows start to appear again!

This book is a fun, silly way to start conversations about weather and light.  It can easily be used in a preschool to fifth grade classroom to fit science standards.
