Gilberto and the Wind

written and illustrated by Marie Hall Ets

A young boy finds in the wind a playmate of many moods.

Young Gilberto makes a new friend and must cope with Wind's changing moods: teasing, playful, stormy, quiet. The illustrations are rendered in only three colors but support the text well. The changing expressions on Gilberto's face are priceless.

I Love This Book

A simple story that can help young children better understand the wind as part of the natural world.
