Reviews

." . . Useful for established readers to share aloud with beginners. A tame and traditional choice for bedtime. (Picture book. 4-7)" --Kirkus Reviews "'It's Only the Wind' is an unusual bedtime story that deals with children's fears and queries about the different, haunting sounds made by the wind. Filled with swirling puffs of blue and magical sweeping, musical wind- word sounds, this children's wind story lullaby enchants and fascinates, while it follows flights of fancy inspired by the wind. The award winning author seems to combine color, artistry, poetry, and music in these pages. A mother tries to answer her two children's questions about the sounds made by the wind, gently persuading them to go to sleep. When the children cry, "Mama! The wind is pounding!" she answers, 'She's just working hard, rolling big waves onto rocks to make sand for the beaches. Night-night, little ones.' The beautiful text is decoratively woven into the swirling illustrations of the blowing wind. The mother's calm answers to her children's questions seems to both calm and feed their curiosity about the wind. For a true multi sensory treat, parents and children will love dipping into 'It's Only the Wind' for a good night story on a blustery night. It is further enhanced by a final page of fascinating facts about wind." --Children's Bookwatch "This bedtime confection presents several arctic animals and raises the question: 'Do they dream like you do? Imagine it's true./Let's see what dream secrets they keep.' . . . suitable for large collections where there is a high demand for sweet bedtime tales. The calm repetitiveness of the slightly silly text and the subdued illustrations would surely help young ones fall asleep." --School Library Journal (Sweet Dreams, Polar Bear) "This fanciful exploration of the origins of Aurora Borealis, the northern lights, is a scrumptious delight."
