It’s Too Windy! is about family and how establishing long lasting traditions leads to developing close family ties that last a lifetime. This enchanting book is about Jessica and David, a young sister and brother, who come to town every chance they have in order to visit with their grandparents and to play with their cousins. One thing they like to do when they visit their grandparents is go swimming in their backyard pool. “Hooray! Yeah! Yippee! Yahoo!” they exclaim as they run out of the house in anticipation of getting into the pool. However, their grandmother has other plans for them. She redirects their play and cites unsatisfactory weather conditions as the reason for not letting them get in the pool. It doesn’t take the reader long to determine that the grandmother has an ulterior motive for not letting her grandchildren get in the pool– but what is it? The reader will enjoy the repetitive text, rhyming words and the rare and unusual vocabulary words throughout the story. There are numerous opportunities for the children to infer as well as to predict how long the grandchildren will have to wait in order to get into the pool or even if they are able to get in the pool.
