Sunny or Cloudy?
What I loved: This is a simple way to introduce weather words to infants and young toddlers. The cut-outs are a really nice touch to add some interest, with a cloud cut-out that fits in through the die-cut page, adding both the peek-through elements and touch-and-feel elements with the raised piece. The book uses simple illustrations and bright colors to help convey each word, and toddlers will quickly learn the book, "reading" it independently by naming the weather term on each page. This is a great choice for solo exploration, as it will be quickly learned and enjoyed.
What left me wanting more: The cut-outs can get a bit stuck, as they are perfectly and tightly cut around the object. A little space between the edges would have helped for little fingers to separate the pages more easily. The edges around the cloud cut-out were a bit sharp, but they did not seem to lead to any damage to anyone, but it would be nice if they had been softened, rather than having the points where the cloud lumps come in. Additionally, and this may have been just our copy, the glue was not perfect on some pages, so we did have to reattach some cut-outs.
Final verdict: A fun board book to teach simple weather words, SUNNY OR CLOUDY? combines cut-outs with bright colors to help with early instruction. Recommend for infants and young toddlers.
