Five cosy reads for chilly days
When it's coming down outside, curl up with your child and a good book
Little Cloud by Eric Carle (Puffin, £6.99)
A very simple story for younger children told with Carle's trademark collage visuals. The playful, shapeshifting little cloud transforms himself into all manner of guises including a horse and an aeroplane then finally joins up with his friends to produce a rain shower. A perfect read for a rainy afternoon that could provide inspiration for cloud-themed arts and crafts.
