The wind shapes clouds and makes kites soar—but it can also light cities, power railroads, and make factories hum to life.

Introduce young readers to the enormous potential of wind energy, and learn how the same force that flies kites and makes ocean waves can power the human world in this celebration of renewable energy. 

Stacy Clark's rhyming, lyrical text explains in simple terms how turbines harness wind energy and turn it into electricity.  Sweeping landscape paintings by Brad Sneed illustrate the journey, from offshore wind farms to power lines stretching across the country, bringing electricity to homes, factories, and more. 

Inspire readers to imagine all the things the wind can do!

Perfect for eco-conscious readers and kids intrigued by how things work, this poetic nonfiction picture book has been vetted by an expert.
