Good Night, Wind : A Yiddish Folktale
by Linda Elovitz Marshall and Maelle Doliveux




Overview -
When the exhausted winter wind throws a snowy tantrum, it finds comfort in the friendship of two young children in this lyrical retelling of a Yiddish folktale illustrated with stunning collage.

Winter Wind worked hard all season long
blowing away leaves,
preparing trees for coats of snow and ice.

Now, Wind is tired and needs a place to rest. But no one wants to shelter so cold and blustery a Wind--not the townspeople, not the country innkeeper, not even the gnarled tree who is worried about frozen roots.

Finally, Wind does what any of us do when we are overtired: Wind has a tantrum. And it is only with the help of two small children brave enough to weather the storm that Wind finally finds the perfect place to sleep.

Based on a Yiddish folktale, the gentle language of this seasonal story is coupled with intricate cut-paper collage dioramas tell this sweet tale about empathy and friendship. The visuals in this book are striking for their vibrancy, palette, and movement.

A perfect read for a cold, blustery day, or at bedtime with your own sleepy loved ones.
