Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Wind is a "Level One, Ready-to-Read" book. It is a look at the phenomenon of wind for a very early reader. The Earth is a ball that spins. As the Earth spins the air around it moves, too. Cold air moves down and warm air moves up. This movement causes wind. We use wind to sail boats, fly kites and spin windmills. Some plants use wind to distribute their seeds. Wind can be scary sometimes, like the winds of tornadoes and hurricanes. Wind can also be soft and gentle. The illustrations are very sweet—light and airy watercolor paintings that work especially well with the subject matter. They do a good job of conveying a sense of movement. We can't see wind, only what it does. The text is large and the sentence structure simple for early readers. 2003, Aladdin, Ages 3 to 8.
— Kristin Harris
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-This beginning reader offers a simple introduction to an interesting topic. Bauer explains the general concept of how wind is produced and some of its tangible effects on our lives. For example, wind helps birds fly, carries plant seeds, and allows people to fly kites. It also moves clouds, makes waves, and can bend trees. "Wind can be scary. Or it can sing a gentle song." Wallace's watercolor artwork shows a young girl and her dog performing a variety of outdoor activities, the child's braids often flying in the breeze. The pictures help to clarify the text, which does a good job of introducing simple concepts and weather terms in an easy-reader format. Refer report writers to Arthur Dorros's Feel the Wind (1990) or Vicki Cobb's I Face the Wind (2003, both HarperCollins), both of which offer more thorough information for young readers.-Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
