Kate, Who Tamed the Wind by Lix Scanlon - OPTIONAL

Scanlon, Liz Garton Kate, Who Tamed the Wind, Illustrated by Lee White. PICTURE BOOK. Schwartz & Wade Books, 2018. $18. 9781101934791

One man lives all alone in a creaky house on the tip-top of a steep hill where the wind is always blowing. The wind is ruining his house and food and he does not know what to do until Kate comes and helps him solve his problem by planting trees.

I love the idea of showing how trees can be used to help in a different way than we normally see. There is also a note from the author at the end about how the reader can help make a difference in the environment. However, I think the author tries to do too many things with the story by repeating phrases, rhyming sometimes and then sometimes not and that did not flow for me as well with the inconsistency.
