That Is How Things Are by Mrs. D.

I was given this book by the author, and having read it, review follows the author’s book blurb found on Amazon.

“That Is How Things Are contains two connected stories: “The Autumn Wind”—A moving story about the powerful wind and the peaceful garden, and how things change quickly when the callous autumn wind unleashes his power. 

The Kitten and the Sparrow”—A heartwarming story about friendship between a kitten and a sparrow, and how the little kitten learns about the power of nature.”

This book contains two stories, ‘The Autumn Wind’ and ‘The Kitten and the Sparrow’ which the author has woven so that books complement each other. In ‘The Autumn Wind‘, children learn about autumn and the weather’s effects on the trees, the changing colors of the leaves, and how ferocious the cold winds can be like, depending on where one lives this time of year.

The Kitten and the Sparrow’ is the second book and it ties in with the first book nicely. The reader views autumn from the view of a kitten and her sparrow friend.  Children learn not only the nature of autumn, but also the way that birds migrate to find food and shelter away from the strong cold winds and weather. It was a positive touch to add that the characters come back each spring.

The illustrations are lovely and tied in with both stories; the trees have faces, the wind cloud has a face and the cloud swirls around showing children how clouds from above affect the trees and life on the ground. Five stars!

  1. Sounds like a perfect book to read in fall! I like the idea of putting two stories together with that theme and lesson for kids. Thanks for posting this.
