The Cloud Children


The Cloud Children is a story told and illustrated by the preschool children of the CA Technologies Montessori Children’s Centre, at Ditton Park. Over a number of months the children submitted and worked on their story with their art teacher Tara Nolty, herself an accomplished author of children’s stories. The also worked to illustrate the story with guidance and support from Tara. The Cloud Children comes from their thoughts, their ideas, and their original story concept.

With Photography and Design by Brian Waters, Media Consultant with the CA Technologies Education Centre of Excellence, this children’s story book has been published just in time for Christmas. Self published and professionally printed through an online printing agent, this book is not available online, it is not available as a download, and is not available for the iPad. It’s a limited edition story book commissioned by The CA Technologies “Challenge Accepted” Million Makers team who are raising money for The Prince’s Trust. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards the Million Makers fundraising to The Prince’s Trust.

Tara Nolty, the preschool children’s art teacher, was more than amazed when she saw the final product, saying that it was “much better than I had ever imagined.” The preschool children, when they saw an advanced copy of the book, were amazed to see their own artwork in the book.

The book will have an initial supply of only 75 books, so if you fancy getting your hands on a copy, you’ll have to be quick. At a price of only £5
, with all proceeds going to the Prince’s Trust, this unique 30 page children’s story book is expected to sell out fast, and additional copies may not be available this side of Christmas. If you must have one, drop me a line at
