This simple book introduces the different intensities of the wind, from gentle breezes that make flags flutter to powerful tornadoes that can lift a house.

Throughout the book, the text flows like poetry, moving young readers along as easily as the wind makes little boats sail across the water. How Does the Wind Blow? is part of the I Wonder Why book series, written to ignite the curiosity of children in grades K–6 while encouraging them to become avid readers.
