Like A Windy Day

Like_A_Windy_Day

A little girl wants to be as dynamic as the wind, and we see the fun things to know about wind.

Full Review

In addition to the little girl in Asch’s illustrations, we see a “wind girl”. This transparent, stylized girl swirls through every scene drawing the viewer into the illustration with the little girl. A good picture book emphasizes elements of a story to the young reader, and this artifice draws the reader in, encouraging them to form the abstract notion of being “like a windy day”.
