This book is great for story time (pre-school or toddler). It's a really simple quiet book with good sounds and soft illustrations. Kids enjoy the pictures too. I had lots of toddlers at story time and I was surprised by how well they noticed the illustrations, they kept stopping me to talk about the owl and the swing and the barn in the book :) It's a book about the wind so I had the children go "swoosh" everytime I turned the page, they enjoyed that also and it helped make the story more ...more
I liked this book that is like "Goodnight Moon" but with an African American boy. Cultural variety in story books is a positive thing for both African American and non-African Americn children alike.
