Windblown is a darling children’s picture book by Édouard Manceau. Readers will be drawn to the sparse, colorful shapes and simple line drawings as animals for the illustrations. As various shapes appear the narrator asks the reader where the paper shapes came from. Whose paper is it? Simple and funny, the book gets readers to play along as the chicken, the frog, the bird, and more animals claim that the paper shapes are theirs. It ends up being a cumulative story where the paper comes from many places.
Windblown was featured in Miss Amanda’s preschool storytimes this week!
The book is great for fans of Hervé Tullet's Press Here, which is another wonderful, interactive and colorful picture book. Why not check them both out?!
