THE PERFECT GIFT FOR ANY NEWBORN AND THEIR FAMILY

The wind leads readers and listeners through the pages of this poetic tale of two mothers—one human, one mouse— recounting the story of giving birth to their children. Lyrically and rhythmically, the repeating chorus “This is the wind that blew on the farm on the night you were born…” guides us through the text as each page adds a continuing line to a song of new life.

Lyrically and rhythmically, the repeating chorus “This is the wind that blew on the farm on the night you were born…” guides us through the text as each page adds a continuing line to a song of new life. Gorgeous illustrations show the human world and the tiny mouse world, both under the same lush moonlight. A treasure for any mother-to-be or new parent.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1

In the spirit of "The House That Jack Built," this cumulative tale recounts a baby's birth on a windy night. As it builds, some of the phrases lose their rhythm, becoming a mouthful that can leave readers gasping for breath. However, the lush, dreamy illustrations in rich, deep hues bring a great deal of loveliness to the story. Opening and closing with the image of a mother rocking her baby, the book is tied together with a wind that blows through the open window and whips around each spread, both dividing and highlighting phrases and images, until it dies down peacefully where it started. The pictures also show a parallel story as a mother mouse moves in and has a litter of babies. Mothers might enjoy sharing this attractive book with young children.-Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA

    BEAUTIFUL!

    A beautiful book that builds on itself as it goes along, with a rhythmic, lulling pace. A wonderful how-you-were-born book that is not mushy, I also love the interplay of a small mouse crawling into the wintry house and how the mouse family paralels the human. Absolutely ravishing illustrations, rich colors.
