Book List: Windy Weather Stories

Stories for a windy day by My Little Bookcase

The weather in  Melbourne at the moment is a little crazy. It can only be descried as wild, woolly and very, very windy. We’re not getting much sleep at night in fear that one of our gorgeous, big gum trees is going to topple onto our roof.  During the day we’re a bit scared of leaving the house in fear of being picked up and blown away.

Here are a few books we’ve been reading this week. Have you got any windy weather stories to add to the list?

This is such a whimsical story, told beautifully alongside gentle watercolour illustrations. On a windy day, a little girl wonders what it might be like to be blown away by the wind.  Her imagination takes her on a wild adventure riding on leaves, sharing tea with a bird, chasing fairies and bouncing on clouds.
