I Face the Wind


by Vicki Cobb
illustrated by Julia Gorton

Air and wind are notoriously challenging for children to understand. They can sense the wind, but can't see it. So what is it really? This title by well-known children's science writer Vicki Cobb uses age- appropriate language and charming illustrations to teach children the basics of wind. Includes some simple activities for children to 'experience' the wind.

We agree with Booklist, who said, "The book's strength is...[that it] takes into account the active learning style of young children." (This book is part of a series called 'Science Play.)
