Frank Asch is one of our favorite authors. His books are so free and playful and simple in the way a child understands the world. The illustrations are always lovely. Like a Windy Day is a treat for any child.
I bought a series of books about the wind after my daughter developed a strong fear of the wind after a bad storm. This book was lovely, showing a broad range of things the wind does, and a girl enjoying the thought of them all. Beautifully illustrated, simple text, and just what I was seeking in regards to the sentiment of the book!
The illustrations are charming. The verses are poetical. I'd have given it five stars except for the gratuitous and prominent inclusion of a bra on the laundry-line page. Some little boys might react with low-culture body-part laughter (the same way they might laugh at the word "butt") and in innocent others, the undergarment might inspire a curiosity that was otherwise dormant. For me as a parent, neither response is to be encouraged in a book about a windy day.
