When the Wind Blows is a poem full of rhythm and rhyme that illustrates many of the possibilities that come from the wind. The book references windmills, circuits, power lines, electricity, and energy sources to tell the story of how this energy from wind power works in our world to heat homes, power trains, and provide light for cities. Basic concepts of engineering, physics, and environmental science enrich the learning experience about this renewable energy source. The simple text and watercolor illustrations engage young readers to learn more about the world around them while enjoying the poetic writing.
