The Wind May Blow
“On the day you were born,” begins this charming picture book, as an adult tells a child how wonderful the day was when the child was born. How the sun shone and roses bloomed in the child’s cheeks. The child grows and is told that someday a storm may grow, the wind may blow, and the sun may go. It may be really hard, but one must just breathe and remember the strength one has to get through times like this. Each storm will eventually pass, and the sun will always come back.
Author Sasha Quinton tells this enchanting story in spare, lyrical language that makes the message just that much stronger. It is powerful that it is told as an adult speaking to a child, encouraging and heartening with each sentence. The illustrations by Thomas Hegbrook are beautifully rendered in gentle colors and soft lines. Cutouts in the pages bring extra interest by highlighting certain items in the pictures or words or phrases that emphasize the message. This book will be a great gift for a person of any age facing new challenges. This beautiful book will become a favorite of any lucky enough to have it.
