Read and find out about the wind--what causes it, how it can be used to help us, and how it affects the weather--in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.
Air is always moving. We can't see air moving, though we can watch it push clouds across the sky, or shake the leaves of a tree. We call moving air the wind.
