The Wind Blew

Pat Hutchins’ classic books are still relevant today and The Wind Blew is a prime example. The wind keeps snatching items away from people and more and more things swirl around in the air above them. Illustrations give hints about what’s next, so this is an ideal story to use for predictions with young children. Science activities about the wind are a good tie-in as well as this cross-curricular science and writing lesson.
