Story
The Wind Blew, by Pat Hutchins
The wind blew, and blew, and blew! It blew so hard, it took everything with it: Mr. White's umbrella, Priscilla's balloon, the twins' scarves, even the wig on the judge's head. But just when the wind was about to carry everything out to sea, it changed its mind! With rhyming verse and colorful illustrations, Pat Hutchins takes us on a merry chase that is well worth the effort.

Feel the Wind, by Arthur Dorros
Air is always moving. We can't see air moving, though we can watch it push clouds across the sky, or shake the leaves of a tree. We call moving air the wind. In this enlarged edition, find out about the wind - what causes it, how it can be used to help us, and how it affects the weather. Arthur Dorros shows you how to make your own weather vane, and in simple terms, with playful illustrations, he explains just what makes the wind that blows all around us.

A Letter to Amy, by Ezra Jack Keats
Peter wants to invite Amy to his birthday party but he wants it to be a surprise.

Follow-Up ActivityPinwheels or bubbles make fun activities for children. You can also have them draw kits riding the wind. You might include kite safety guidelines to take home.
