Pure, complete relaxation. There is not a lot of stress involved in looking up at a cloud formation and recording it in the book. Who wouldn’t want to slip away for a few minutes to contemplate the clouds.

150 stunning photographs, good quirky humor, and real meaningful content. You’ll look at clouds a different way, every day.

A beautiful collection of clouds photographed around the world – clear, lighthearted explanations help you identify cloud formations on your own!

And when you have several formations recorded – that’s all it takes. You’re converted cloud-watching addict. If you’re the competitive type, (kids like this aspect as well), there are points awarded for each cloud type identified. The rarer the cloud, the greater points!

A neat book for the nature-lover, the dreamer, the scientist, the person who has everything, a curious child, people aiming to occupy a curious child, vacationers, recent graduates or newly retired – anyone who would benefit from simply staring up at the clouds once in a while.

    Cloud Collector's Handbook
    Posted 2/25/2014 by A Grandma

    Although my grandson (age 8) has been interested in weather, this is a little advanced for him. I bought it along with the Pet Tornado--which he LOVES! He has a fascination with tornadoes and says he wants to be a 'storm chaser'. I am sure the cloud handbook will be used as he gets older.

    I bought it for my 6-year old and he is very fond of it. It is exactly as described with the wonderful pictures and a lot of information. It's size allows for the book to be carried around to watch the skies and learn about clouds, which is exactly what my son has been doing since he got it.
