It’s bedtime, it’s hard to fall asleep and the kids call out to mom again and again. It’s Only the Wind playfully hops back and forth between real and imagined, fact and fantasy, from soft, shadowy quiet to bright and colorful action. The story celebrates children’s heightened imagination taking them out of their cozy bed into the sky, as they envision their mother’s explanations for the sounds that they hear. Wind words spin through the double spreads as the kids fly, sweep, sing and sail always with their eyes closed, as mom has asked them to do so they can be ready for sleep. The children’s curiosity is satisfied in the end. Wind facts included on the last page.
