About the Book

While the blowing wind makes “porch doors sway” and “sea waves spray,” it is responsible for much, much more. These same breezes send electron power traveling down windmills and circuits to ignite electricity. Electrons travel through power lines, and electricity charges the national grid so that lights may be turned on, cold homes may be warmed, and warm homes may be cooled. The gusts can help make “Factories hum / Harbors light up / Smart cars run.”

With a poetic text and sweeping landscape paintings, this picture book explores the many facets of the wind and shows how blowing wind generates power as it introduces very young children to basic physics and engineering concepts.
