My name is Summer Winters, but Miss Cloudy Pants suits me just fine.
I want to know why clouds are different sizes, colors and shapes in the sky!
I asked my Mama Winters if she could help me understand why.
My sweet Miss Cloudy Pants, I could tell you in a snap.
But that’s the easy way out, where’s the fun in that?
To learn for yourself, all the questions in your mind,
Just open a book. The answers are simple to find.
Here’s a BIG BOOK OF WEATHER, you can read before you sleep.
Good night, Miss Cloudy Pants. Enjoy your new treat!
When I look at the sky, I see clouds are never the same.
If my name is Summer, do they have their own name?
Why do clouds act so funny, changing shapes every day?
There are big ones, small ones- some white and gray!
There’s so much I don’t know. I would love to learn more!
My eyes are too heavy. I will wait until tomorrow.
Summer, Summer, wake up! I have been watching you from above.
Let’s go on an adventure- one you are sure to love.
I have a crew of clouds ready to meet you and play.
First let me start with myself, an introduction -if you may.
My special cloud name is C-I-R-R-U-S- ----Cirrus!
I love to laugh. Ha Ha! I am never too serious!!
Cirrus is your special cloud name? What a funny word!
I don’t think I have ever heard such a strange name before.
I am small, light as a feather and float high in the sky.
When I hang around, the weather is just fine.
Shhhhh….What’s all that noise? You guys are having way toomuch fun!
I like things quiet! Are you two almost done?
Oh that’s just our cloud friend, S-T-R-A-T-U-S. He isalways a bore.
Skies filled with STRATUS always make me want tosleep and snore.
I am thin and wide like a cozy blanket in the sky.
I like to play it safe. I do not like to travel too high.
Look Summer, do you see the huge cloud over there?
It’s our biggest friend, C-U-M-U-L-U-S and she is coming over here!
Hello Summer, it’s nice to meet you.
I am the strongest cloud in our cloud crew!
When you see me from the ground, I look like a big, beautiful, puffy cotton ball.
I eat a lot of delicious water drops to grow big and tall.
CUMULUS, why do I see white clouds turn gray?
When you change colors, is it because you are having a sad day?
Gray clouds means we ate too many water drops.
When clouds get too full, rain comes down when we pop!
Cumulus, Stratus and Cirrus- I love learning about your cloud crew!
Next time I look up at the sky, I will say hi to each one of you.
Summer, we hate to say goodbye!
But this dream has run out of time!
Remember, we are watching from up high.
Come back- we have more friends to show you in the sky.
