Children's LiteratureWind 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.
