I would use this in my classroom to help my kids understand basic science through play. It is an easy way to introduce them to the beginning of science lessons.

Review: I Face the Wind by Vicki Cobb, 2003, is a nonfiction story about science, but told in a fun entertaining way!
Blurb: this is a great example of the genre because while its factual and real information it's a fun story with activities and fun illustrations.

This nonfiction book touches on science for young learners. It answers questions we have about wind and how it works. The illustrations were interesting too. The book flows nicely, one of my favorite this year.

This would be good for maybe first graders and to do an activity before or after the book to further their understanding of science

This is a nonfiction book. This was a good book because it included everyday things that happen to kids and explained the science behind them

I just love the illustrations of this book, especially the one I have attached to this post. I love how the illustrator decided to illustrate the wind. Each illustration in this book is unique, and not like anything I've ever seen before.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I think it explains what wind is and why we have wind very well to children. The illustrations in this book are also amazing and very unique.

Tape the inflated balloon or bag onto the hanger. What happens when you hang it on the pencil?

This book was amazing! It is designed to the reader can make discoveries while reading. It asks you questions that can be answered by doing the activities about wind. It gives you a list of materials before reading the book so the reader can figure out facts about wind through first-hand experiences.

I loved the experiment to show that air has weight. the structure was amazing with the step by step pictures. I would defiantly have this in a classroom

Love, Love, Love. I feel that this book would make learning something as confusing as wind so much easier. The experiments in the book were simple but illustrated this concept so well

This book is nonfiction and was published in 2003. The whole concept of this book is to be interactive and supply information about air and wind. I think that it is fun and very informative, and great when discussing these subjects in the classroom.
Aside from this, the book was extremely interactive and allows for one to pose questions to either the other readers or the listeners. I think it is a great read for anyone and has useful information.

em_lemo A quote that is a great precursor to get a little bit of insight on the book is...
“Imagine that a ball is like a single moving air molecule. Sit on the floor and roll a ball so that it bumps into your leg...“

Nonfiction. This is a great nonfiction book for a classroom because it can be read to the class and then the activities inside can be done. It‘s perfect for a lesson or just a curious reader and it‘s engaging enough, I think, for even a child who isn‘t so interested in wind or nonfiction.

I Face the Wind by Vicki Cobb and illustrated by Julia Gorton, 2003. This is a great nonfiction story because it not only tells you about air and wind with fun illustrations, it also gives the readers activities to do to test out the ideas about wind themselves. This book is fun and informative and perfect for children that are curious about what they can‘t see.

This would be a great book for an older elementary class. I would do this as a class activity or a silent reading time. Any time we had time I would ask a few of the questions from the book.

I really enjoyed this book! I find it so interesting the way it‘s set up. It‘s set up very simple so it‘s not overwhelming but it still poses a question for the kids to answer.
