A joyful birthday celebration long planned comes to a screeching halt when it appears the sky is falling. Not to be stalled by the clouds that have blanketed her town, Carla is determined to make her way home with her special birthday cake.
However, her father, the Director of Transportation has other plans. Taking the lead in solving this unusual catastrophe they join the mayor at town hall for an emergency meeting. Will the adults practical solutions or Carla’s imagination solve the cloud catastrophe in time to enjoy Carla’s birthday party or will the town stay blanketed by clouds forever?
What better way to spark the interest of science in our young muses but through this imaginative story. Children’s author Beth Bence Reinke brings the questions “what is a cloud” and “how do they float” to life in this laugh out loud story, which will surely create lively discussions both in and outside the classroom.
Carla’s Cloud Catastrophe would not be complete without Ginger Nielson’s vivid and clever illustrations; making Carla’s story a true gem for libraries, classrooms, and homes throughout the world.
