How Little Cloud Was Created

I have always loved to tell stories and make up fantastic tales.  My son has High-functioning Autism (formerly Asperger’s Syndrome.)  I had a hard time finding good social stories he could relate to when he was younger.  I gained a lot of experience making up stories to help him understand situations and understand other people.  I would often make up amazing stories on his favorite subject to help him understand things better.  Once, I told him a story of a time-traveling tractor.  He loved them.

Little Cloud was “born” on a trip from San Diego to Boston.  I was talking to a delightful lady named Delores.  She pointed out one lonely cloud out the window of the plane.  The sky was as blue as a baby’s eyes, there were no other clouds to be seen.  A story about the lost Little Cloud popped into my head.  I grabbed my laptop and the first story was written before the plane landed.

Later, I realized the potential to use Little Cloud to help children deal with emotions and build social skills.  On the way home from Boston, I wrote another story.  At the urging of family and friends I decided to publish Little Cloud so others could enjoy his adventures.
