Title: When the Wind Blows

Author:  Mi-hye Kim

Summary:

Introduce kids to weather and wind using this simple, colorful picture book.  The wind can be gentle like a butterfly, but also powerful and angry, bringing in storms.  It helps to spread plant seeds and makes a sailboat glide across the water.  What makes wind?  What does wind do?  The answers to these questions are illustrated and explained in the back of the book, and there is a step-by-step illustrated guide to help kids make their own weather vane.  A “Let’s Think!” and “Let’s Do!” section encourage further exploration.
