PICTURE BOOK: Flora's Very Windy Day by Jeanne Birdsall

Flora's Very Windy Day

Another sweet sibling tale. Flora is fed up with her little brother - and Mom is fed up with both of them. So she sends them outside to play. When the kids are blown away by the wind, Flora chooses to keep her brother safe and with her even though he can sometimes be a pain. I felt like this story was a pretty accurate reflection of life with a sibling (at least, how it looks with other folks - I am an only child) - while Flora is annoyed by her brother, she doesn't want to lose him. Fun story for fall or for talking about family.
