Ivy and the Lonely Raincloud (Hardcover)

A lonely raincloud and a grumpy little florist, unloved by all, discover friendship together in this heartwarming book!
Rain, rain, go away!  Come again another day!
Everyone loves the sunshine, right?  That is except a raincloud.  In Ivy and the Lonely Raincloud, a very sad raincloud really wants to find a friend.  Instead he stumbles upon a very upset girl who is a florist.  He doesn’t know why she is so upset, but they realize that they both need each other and the lonely little raincloud had the perfect answer for his new friend Ivy.  By using what most people disliked him the most for, rain, he was able to make Ivy and her flowers smile again.  This is a warm book full of the need for friendship and finding it in the unlikeliest of places.  Just because someone is different than you does not mean you can’t be friends – or even BEST friends.  Love.
