Deep in the heart of Aladrya stands a mighty mountain. Rising high above the clouds, its rocky crags and windswept cliffs are home to four species of birds. With only three days left until the full moon feast, Whisker's mission to save his sister hangs in the balance. Even if he can reach the mountain alive, he still has to outwit and out-fly the dreaded birds of prey.
Children of the Clouds is a poetic fantasy, written for children of all ages. It focuses on the power of belief but uses the power of imagination to help us develop positive self-esteem. It touches on friendship, childhood companionship, and the influence of family in helping us to believe in ourselves. It takes place in the now but also challenges our ability to understand the magic of our existence and the ways in which we depend on others to reinforce our belief system. The story of the poem encourages us to dream and to soar above accepted norms if we are to recognize the creative capacity that we all possess but which we often lose when we crave the acceptance of society.
The name clouds comes from the fact that they are made of water. The fact is, clouds are everywhere. They can look like many different things, such as trees, airplanes, and bread rolls. Their formation is a result of different atmospheric conditions. During storms, these cloud formations can become huge and destructive, but they can also be very beautiful and photogenic. In the right conditions, clouds can create rainbows.
In the following pages, we will discover the answer to the question “Where do clouds come from?” In reality, this seemingly simple question is a combination of different scientific phenomena that can be studied individually or as a whole. Let’s take the child-friendly route for the benefit of young learners. Let’s use this book today!
Did you know that there are at least four classifications of clouds? Clouds are classified based on their composition, height, and type of precipitation. Clouds can be cirrus, stratus, cumulus and cumulonimbus. In this book, you will gain the knowledge required to classify the clouds you see in the sky now. What do you think it is?
Would you like to learn how to read the skies? Then this is the book to have! The clouds tell so much about the weather today and tomorrow. In the olden times, our ancestors relied only on sky observation to predict the weather and plan their activities for the next few days. You will have the power to do just that if you have the knowledge first.
While it’s fun to say that it’s a rainy day, or a sunny day, and so on; it’s better to understand how those happen. There’s no need to get too technical and scientific about it. This educational book weeds out the big words and replaces them with a vocabulary that’s appropriate for 2nd graders. Your child needs to know how the world moves so grab a copy now!
The stupendous work by Kavalam Balachandran, in which he endeavours to demythify and reconstrue the saga of Ramayana from a diametrically opposite perspective, is a landmark event. Indeed, it is the fruit of a long haul of research, imagination and logical thought process by which faces, places and events are reoriented to concoct a plausible narrative. Do read it to the end, as this genre of books does not happen every now and then. -Dr. Alex Paikada Writer, Historian and Poet
