Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. At first glance, this book in the Exploring the Elements series appears to be a traditional picture book in which a multicultural cast of children at the beach, in the country, and in the city tell why they like the wind and ask questions related to their experience. But there's a nice surprise: each right-hand page folds out to reveal the answer to the child's question along with several spot illustrations that help demonstrate the wind's impact. For instance, a girl with a bubble wand likes the way the wind blows her bubbles and wonders why they burst. The foldout opens to show in a simple yet memorable way what happens from the time the bubble leaves her wand to when it pops. Lafrance's acrylic paintings offer attractive scenes of children at play as well as good visual explanations. A user-friendly introduction to the science behind everyday occurrences. - Carolyn Phelan

Review

? Who Likes the Wind? ? is particularly successful as a non-fiction book, using concrete examples from everyday life to elucidate some physical principles ? Adults will appreciate this excellent teaching tool, since it reminds them to value the curiosity and fascination children have for the world around them. At the same time, the book will equip care-givers with accurate, explicit explanations to answer kids’ many questions. They will doubtless learn a thing or two themselves in the process.
