Shhh! You've just entered the Becker's Book Corner. A quiet peaceful place. A place where you can come anytime you want to curl up and read about wonderful books for young children.
Ahhh! A place to get excited about books, ideas, and connections. Think about how this book might spark some interesting discussion or relate to a topic of study or thematic unit
Hmmm! A place to wonder. Will my students relate to the characters in this book? Will they relate to the storyline? Is there something new and wonderful to share with them? What activities can I do to build on the story?

The wind is the main character of this time honored story told by Pat Hutchins. Even though it was written over 40 years ago, the story still holds. The wind is portrayed as a force to be reckoned with. It snatches and sweeps; whips and spins; grabs and tosses anything it chooses up in the air. It wreaks havoc with the characters in this story!
