When The Wind Stops
Written by Charlotte Zolotow
Illustrated by Stefano Vitale

Review by: Monica Barker

      Charlotte Zolotow's poetic words illustrated by Stafano Vitale, via paintings on wood, blend together into an unforgettable piece of children's literature. When The Wind Stops is as versatile a book as it is beautiful. It's an awesome description of the continuity of life and wonders of the world around us.
     When The Wind Stops is a story about new beginnings, seasons changing, nature and the weather. As a young boy is tucked into bed one night, he asks his mother, "Why does the day have to end?" She explains that the day doesn't end, it begins somewhere else. "Where does the wind go when it stops?" he asks. "Where does the rain go when the storm is over?" "Where do waves go when they break the sand?" Each answer given by the mother leads to another question from her sleepy son. Day and night, wind, waves and rain-- "Nothing ends… it begins in another place or a different way."
      As you read When The Wind Stops to your 4-8 year-olds, pause between the boy's questions and his mother's answers. Let your children supply their own answers first. You'll be amazed at the depth and vividness of their imaginations. Be sure to allow enough time to answer even more of their questions once the book is closed. You'll be glad you did.
