Flora’s Very Windy Day by Jeanne Birdsall

October 4, 2011 - 9:12 am No Comments

Flora has about had it with her little brother, Crispin. Their mom sends them outside to play on a very windy day and Flora’s little brother ends up getting swept up in the wind. Flora takes off her super heavy boots so that she too can be swept up in the wind and rescue her little brother. On their adventure they bump into a dragonfly, a sparrow, a rainbow, a cloud, an eagle and the moon. All of them want Crispin to stay with them and help them, but Flora knows it’s her duty as the big sister to get him home safe and sound.

I also love, love, love the watercolors used for the illustrations in this book. They are so beautiful and really capture the feeling of the fall leaves and the blowing wind.
