It Looked Like Spilt Milk is one of my very favorite children's storytime books. As a teacher, I used this book to do a whole theme in teaching. We blot painted w/the bright royal blue paper and white paint and I asked the children (2/3yr.olds) what their picture looked like, we had pudding in a cloud, used the book w/a flannel board of the pieces simply cut out of laminated white construction paper with velcro attached. And we finished our unit by going outside lying on our backs and looking at the clouds to find our own characters in the sky. We also talked about making mistakes (crying over spilt milk) and asking for forgiveness and how God will forgive us. just bought the BB book & hardback for my first grandbaby.

I bought this book for my 4 year old granddaughter based on a recommendation from a friend. My granddaughter and I both love it and read it at naptime, bedtime and I plan on getting my 2 year old grandson hooked on it too. We play cloud games when we travel or are outside.

This book is for age¿s four to seven, but younger children can enjoy this book as well. The book is about clouds taking the shapes of different objects. This book is a fun way to get children involved in the story by simply having them guess what the shape of the cloud looks like. This book opens children¿s eyes to look at clouds in a different way. After reading this book, I am sure that children's imaginations will go wild the next time they look up at the sky.

It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles Shaw is a picture book that could be used for all ages, but I would recommend using this book with young children grade level pre k-2. There is very little text and much of the text is repeated, however the simplicity of the book and pictures are helpful in engaging the children to use their creativity. This book is about clouds, and the images they may appear to be. This book would be helpful as an introduction to a young class of pre k or kindergarteners that are about to learn of seasons and weather change. This would also be a fun introduction for second graders that are about to start learning about different cloud types.The Structure of this book is fairly simple, text is on the left page and the image is on the right. The background color is navy blue on all of the pages and the image and text are white. This book reminds me of an ink test and allows the children to use their imagination and create their own interpretation of the image.

The story, "It Looked Like Spilt Milk" is an information book about clouds. The book begins by showing a big white mess and saying, "It looks like spilt milk, but its not spilt milk." The story goes on just like this with different animals and shapes. Throught the book the students are trying to figure out what it is. At the end of the story it tells us that its a cloud and that clouds look like different shapes. I really enjoyed this book and I feel like it is a great way to introduc clouds.

This repetitive book shows readers how different cloud shapes can appear like various objects. The text, "It looked like ____. But it wasn't ____" repeats with each picture/page.

Terrific book to teach imagination. I used it in a Haitian 2nd-3th grade class. Then we made our own book with paint and sting. The teachers and childen were amazed and awed that they could make their own book. Fantastic Book!!!

This is a great book that helps kids think about objects in different ways. I bought this book for my two year old son and he loves it! We have read it so many times that he already has most of it memorized. It is fun to watch him "read" the story by himself.

A beautiful book for developing language in young children and English Learners. Provides an excellent avenue for drawing young readers into a book with simple drawings and repetitive language that helps beginning readers develop confidence. Perfect framework for individual students to produce their own clouds and sentences to contribute to a bulletin board for a future classroom book.

It's just a little books about all the things clouds can look like -- an ice cream cone, a tree, a flower, a birthday cake. Simple text - your child can memorize it quickly. We have a lot of fun with this book.
