Do you get worried when one of your parents runs late from work? Combine that with an angry storm and the concerns will only intensify. Junior Badger, or JB, is going about his evening routine, ready to brush his teeth and put on his pajamas, when he begins to feel anxious about his papa running late. He decides to take action and summons the wind with the intent of settling the ferocious storm so that his father can make it back home safely. Will JB manage to tame Mr. Wind? Find out in Shernett Griffiths' The Hungry Wind Blows, a recommended story to start the conversation about separation anxiety and processing challenging feelings.
The Hungry Wind Blows by Shernett Griffiths is an enchanting book, perfect for any child’s bookcase thanks to its colorful pictures and intriguing storytelling. With cartoony illustrations by Dmitry Fedorov, each page brings excitement and mysticism to the story. It creates a universe full of greenery where kindness thrives and a utopia is worth striving for. JB’s character is easy to relate to, making the lessons accessible to young readers. If the goal is for children to grow into resilient, self-reliant human beings, I would surely want JB in my little one’s inner circle. The themes of collaboration and dealing with rejection are at the core of the story. Most importantly, this sweet little story serves as a good reminder to never give up fighting for something worthwhile.
