I love how play-centric and accessible this series is for early elementary readers.

Ever lose your hat in a strong wind? Ever feel the wind pushing you from side to side? Know why you can feel the wind, but never see it? You will! Renowned science author Vicki Cobb makes scientific principles easy for even the youngest kids to understand.

This book would be fabulous in the early elementary school classroom. It discusses the concepts of wind and air and asks students questions about things they have likely experienced, such as their hair blowing in the wind or flying a kite. Then, the book begins to discuss air and molecules in a child friendly way. It also tells about basic experiments students could do to play with wind, such as wave a book around and feel the air, or put air in a balloon and see if they can 'weigh' air. This book would be great to introduce exploration to students and introduce the concept of air at a young age which may typically be considered an older student topic. ( )

I can face the Wind by Vicki Cobb is such a fun science play book. This book starts with a note from the author describing how it is made for play. There are lots of times in which the reader is instructed to stop and pause and think about what that question means. There are times for discovery as the reader and times to learn about wind. It brings in ideas that we all often have about how much does wind/air weigh? Can you even weigh air? How does that work? There are experiments for classes to do. I think that this book would do well in a kindergarten classroom to help those students explore that science topic and give them an opportunity to ask questions that they have! ( )

The book I Face the Wind by Vicki Cobb is a great informational picture book about wind. This would be a great read for first of second graders. It has a series of questions that provoke scientific investigations. Students can participate in these experiments that help kids understand what wind and ultimately air is. This is a great read aloud and whole class project that can lead students to understanding wind and air. Their is some are some new words presented in the text, but the are explained or described within the text. This provides a content for these students to understand these new words. I would use this book in my classroom as a fun way to introduce scientific inquiry and investigation. ( )
