In the Wind

by Elizabeth Spurr, illustrated by Manelle Oliphant

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.


“A gentle outing for children who are ready for stories of everyday life rather than just objects to name.”
Kirkus Reviews
“The soft, painterly illustrations transport readers to that blustery day in the park, right up to the beautiful sunset, and able communicate that girl’s emotional experience.”
