Windy Days

Finished September 5
Windy Days by Deborah Kerbel and Miki Sato

This charming picture book conveys the feeling of a windy day in all its variations. From the gentle wind that ruffles your hair to the blustery wind that chills, the images and words bring them all to life. I always love the collage images that Sato uses in these picture books and how they reflect the words from Kerbel, but also add more, allowing readers to take their time and explore the pictures, finding new things to discuss. The children portrayed here enjoy the feel of the wind, and how it behaves on other things around them, from plants to pinwheels and kites. 
At the end of the book, they include more information giving suggestions for science experiments that are both fun to do and a great learning experience. The also give information on types of clouds that are shown in the book and encourage the reader to find examples of each one.
Like the rest of this series, the covers are padded with rounded corners and the pages thick and easy to grasp. 
A joy to read, and one that will be revisited often by young readers.
