Wind, Ocean, Grass by Karen A. Wyle, illustrated by Tomasz Mikutel
This unique picture book has neither human nor animal characters, but instead features the wind speaking to the grass, explaining how long grasses are both like and unlike the waves of the ocean. Through lyrical prose and breathtaking impressionist-style paintings, the reader follows the wind’s journey over sea and land: the many moods of the ocean, the different seasons of the grassy field. We see glimpses of the birds that live off the bounty of the ocean, and the birds and flowers that live among the grasses. Through this nature metaphor, the story, without becoming didactic, teaches children about seeing commonality and celebrating differences.
