Publisher's Summary

Spring weather can be exciting!

When wind chimes start singing and clouds race across the sky, one little guy knows just what to do—grab his kite!

But as the kite soars, the wind picks up even more, and soon he and his grandma are chasing the runaway kite into town. As they pass swirling leaves, bobbing boats, and flapping scarves, breezes become gusts and the sky darkens. Rain is on the way! Can they squeeze in one more adventure before the downpour?

Scenes rich with springtime details for little eyes to follow and lyrical verse that captures the changeable mood of the weather make this perfect for spring story times.

Lemony Snickers

Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.

When the Wind Blows is a cute rhyming book about all the different sounds and scenes that come with wind. The author uses strong verbs to paint beautiful imagery: kites fly, ties flip, trees dance. The two-word sentences carry through nearly every page of the book, so it goes by fast, just like the windy day it tells of.
