by Jeanne Birdsall
illustrated by Matt Phelan

Oh, the joys of having a little brother! In Flora's Very Windy Day the first picture book from The Penderwicks author Jeanne Birdsall, Flora has just about had enough of being a big sister after Crispin spills her paints. When the pair are sent outside, the wind might present the perfect opportunity to blow Crispin away, until the last moment when Flora joins him on a rather windy adventure. Kids will love following Flora and Crispin as the wind blows them on a high-flying adventure where they meet a dragonfly, an eagle, a friendly rainbow, the man in the moon and more before the wind agree to help them. Will Flora blow back home without Crispin, or maybe just realize how important big sisters are for their little brothers?
