Cloud babies  Cover Image Book Book

Cloud babies / Eoin Colfer ; illustrated by Chris Judge.


Six-year-old Erin's favorite game is spotting animals in the clouds with her mom and dad -- everything from fluffy foxes and polar bears to little rabbits. Even when Erin falls very ill and has to spend a long time in the hospital, she still manages to find joy in spying "cloud babies" through the window with her new hospital friends. When the doctor tells Erin she can go home, she is so excited! But being back at school is not at all what she expected -- so much has changed, and Erin must reconcile the safe realm she's just left with a world outside that has become unfamiliar. With Mom and Dad's love and wisdom, however, and with the help of her teacher and friends, Erin comes to see that by sharing her experience she can find happiness again in just being herself. -- Provided by publisher.
