Wow! What a force this wind has been around here! I have been reminded of a book that was fun to read to the students when I was still teaching.
|In this book, the wind becomes a storyteller!|
Tossy is sick in bed, and of course, is very tired of being sick in bed! So, she asks the wind to tell her a story! In the story, the wind is quite agreeable to come up with stories that match the windows that Tossy mentions.
|I thought the illustrations are especially nice.|
The book has a 1974 copyright date, so I am not sure if it would still be available. If you are interested and able to find it, I think you would be pleased.
We expect our temperature to finally be above freezing this week-end. This has been a very cold week!
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
The illustrations are charming, Nellie. As is that book.ReplyDelete
Delighted to hear you will get above freezing this week-end. They're telling us we may not get above freezing until February!
Thanks for sharing, Nellie...Stay warm:)
I love how the wind is ever-shifting, ever-changing, never the same from one second to the next.ReplyDelete
I am amazed that it is 1974. The illustrations remind me of a treasured book I was given as a teen that was very very old. I need to try to find that.ReplyDelete
The illustration on the cover of the book looks as though it had been drawn in 1919 or thereabouts (that's how old the book I have, is.)
I love the illustration on the cover. It looks like a good kid book.ReplyDelete
Great book Nellie . I bet you was a wonderful teacher , so caring , have a wonderful weekend and stay warm , thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
What a lovely book. I haven't ever seen this one. I do hope you get some nice warm weather. It is unnaturally warm here today.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend Nellie.
What fun subject matter for a story.The graphics are lovely. Our winds will be howling later this afternoon as a blizzard is arriving after 2pm. This will make for an interesting commute home for our students. What a wild winter.ReplyDelete
The illustrations and the cover of the book are beautiful!ReplyDelete
That sounds and looks like a cute book. I'll bet kids love it.ReplyDelete
The wind has been telling us some scary stories lately... and it's cold and icy here. I'm so tired of being cold!ReplyDelete
I would have guessed the book was older than the '70s, too. (I mean, wasn't that just a few years ago?)ReplyDelete
Once again, it's colder here in Georgia today than it is is Alaska. Bizarre! It isn't supposed to go above freezing today, but I have high hopes for the weekend.
Never seen that book before, but it looks wonderful. I will keep an eye out. :)ReplyDelete
