Gilberto and the Wind based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
This is a beautiful, quiet, poetic story about a little boy whose playmate is the wind. I have read this many times to groups of young children when I was a children's librarian in New York City and they listened attentively. It would be ideal for reading to a child on your lap . Enjoy!
The book came just in time to read to my students! I ordered the book on a friday and it was here by Wednesday!
Beautiful, evocative illustrations enhance a strong, simple tale of a little boy and his playmate, the Wind.
