The wind leads readers and listeners through the pages of this poetic tale of two mothers—one human, one mouse— recounting the story of giving birth to their children. Lyrically and rhythmically, the repeating chorus “This is the wind that blew on the farm on the night you were born…” guides us through the text as each page adds a continuing line to a song of new life. Gorgeous illustrations show the human world and the tiny mouse world, both under the same lush moonlight. A treasure for any mother-to-be or new parent.
