This Top Review Says It All!
Reviewed by Amy Louise Hill
Clouds at Play by Brian Jay is a fun and imaginative picture book for children. The book shows images of clouds that have shapes hidden within them and provides a rhyme to help the young reader guess what each one is. Each page becomes more and more exciting as the shapes take form into bigger and more spectacular animals! This book inspires creativity and will expand the young reader's imagination. I wonder how many shapes you can guess correctly?
Author Brian Jay is a talented artist and has a broad imagination. I think it's safe to say that most people as children looked up at the clouds and tried to find different shapes within them, and it was the most fun thing to do! This book can be used in numerous situations; for example, you could try to match the shapes in the book with the real shapes in the sky, or if you are sick and can't go outside, you can simply pick up Clouds At Play and still join in the fun. Children will love taking part in this activity book, and it will be a good bonding experience as you relate to the excitement they feel as nostalgia kicks in. I enjoyed every page of this wonderful book, and I know it will be a great success among children. I hope to see more of Brian Jay's talent soon. Keep up the good work, stay creative, and enjoy your writing journey!
