Praise For What On Earth?: Wind: Explore, create and investigate

"Parents and teachers, this nonfiction book is for us to facilitate learning by reading the wind information (even myths and poems) and making the related projects (pinwheel, windsock, tornado in a bottle, sail racers) with kids. The muted colors and quiet font appeal as does the organization of information. I really like this book! Also read: What on Earth? Water." - Melissa Taylor, Imagination Soup

"A multifaceted invitation to young readers to explore, create, and investigate the phenomenon of wind. As part of a new series with an interdisciplinary approach to learning about our world, this combines reading with doing, offering facts and explanations, an Abenaki legend and Greek ideas about the wind, and two cheerful, original poems." - Kirkus Reviews
