Marc Notes:

Noah knows where the wind comes from– but where does the wind go?.

Review Quotes:


“Noah has endless curiosity about how and why things work. . . . Cowman’s gusty wisps show each stream of air turning a different jewel tone, swirling all around. . . . Worthington’s sensitive exploration leaves readers with their own set of questions and perhaps gratitude for all types of perspectives.

An invitation to wonder, imagine and look at everything (humans included) in a new way. “
— Kirkus Review

Noah Chases the Wind is about a little boy who has autism. Noah knows he is different. He acts, feels, and sees things differently than other kids. Noah likes to learn about new things and he wants to know where the wind goes. Noah decided he can find out where the wind goes if he chases the wind. The wind goes around the town. Then the wind picks Noah up and flies him high above the clouds. Noah learns where the wind goes.

I really loved Noah Chases the Wind. It reminds me of one of my friend who looks like Noah. He learns things a bit differently and also has autism. I am seven years old and am able to read this book on my own. The illustrations are great. The pictures are soft, colorful, and detailed. I liked going back and looking at the pictures. I loved the way the illustrator drew the wind. I wish we could really fly with the wind like Noah does.–Jewel, Age 7, San Francisco Book Review
