The Wind May Blow


A touching story about never giving up, even when life seems difficult.


Using the weather as a metaphor for life's ups and downs, this beautiful picture book gently encourages children to never give up, reminding them that they are loved and are always 'enough', just the way they are.


A beautiful story to read to even the youngest of children. It made me feel really emotional the first time I read it aloud. Quinton's clever use of 'you' makes this feel like a shared conversation and immensely personal. It would make a wonderful gift for a new baby, or a great purchase for a young child who is finding things a bit tough after the upheaval of the last few years.


The Wind May Blow also has a lovely peep through design, with a clever use of repeating words. The brush strokes in the text add to the stories personal approach, making it look like a handwritten letter. Hegbrook's illustrations are bright and engaging, perfectly capturing the ever-changing weather in stunning backgrounds and colours.

Thank you Little Tiger for sending us a copy to review.
