Picture Book Review: I Like the Wind

I Like the Wind by Sarah   Nelson

I Like the Wind
by Sarah Nelson (Goodreads Author), Rachel Oldfield (Illustrations)
4 out of 5 stars

Children are woken by the wind blowing through their window, whispering to come outside and play. They fly a kite, race the wind, and watch the clouds blowing by. The branches of the trees bend in the wind, and the windows shake and rattle.

I loved the free and breezy mood of this book! I personally love being out in a windy day, so this book really resonated with me.

The illustrations are so cute and colorful! Every page is full of blustery wind. The leaves and flags and curtains in the background really feel like they are being recklessly blown about. The art is so good that you can feel the movement of the wind in every scene.

The rhyming text is quite good. I am very picky about rhymes in children’s books, but I was happy with the lovely story and good rhymes in this book.
