The Wind May Blow
Every parent wishes for his or her child to be able to handle the challenges that life presents. Sometimes, our life experiences will not be smooth; there will be times when fierce winds blow, storms rage, and rain falls, making the situation feel hopeless. Through lyrical text and inviting illustrations, children are reminded that they are strong and smart and can figure out a solution to every tricky situation that they may face. Features peek-through pages throughout.
What I loved: This is a lovely poem that will particularly appeal to adults who understand and appreciate the metaphors and encouragement. Young children will understand the gist and appreciate the bright illustrations, cool cut-outs, word art, and rhythmic language. The design is really unique, and it comes together beautifully. This would be a great gift book for people who are setting out on a new path or going through hardships.
Final verdict: A lovely piece of poetic encouragement, THE WIND MAY BLOW is an artistically composed picture book that will speak to anyone going through hardship or in need of a pick-me-up.
