Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Where does the wind go when it stops?

When a little boy asks this question at the end of a happy day, his mother explains that the wind does not stop-it blows away to make the trees dance somewhere else.

Reassuringly, she tells him that nothing ever ends, it simply begins in another place or in another way. Rain goes back into the clouds to create new storms, waves fold back upon the sea to become new waves, and the day moves on to make way for the night, bringing the darkness and stars for the little boy to dream in.

Charlotte Zolotow's lyrical prose and Stefano Vitale's rich illustrations make this a beautiful celebration of the cycle of life.

Synopsis:

When a little boy asks his mother where the wind goes when it stops she answers, "It blows away to make the trees dance somewhere else". Her reassuring answers to his questions make it clear that nothing in nature ever ends; that life simply begins again in another place or another way. Full color.
