In the Wind

Elizabeth Spurr

Simple and evocative language and charming illustrations describe a girl's experience on a windy day.

In this gently rhyming board book, a young girl makes, flies, and loses her kite on a windy day. But when she returns home, something special is waiting for her.

Elizabeth Spurr and Manelle Oliphant together create a perfect sit-in-your-lap reading experience for toddlers.
