This book is typically read or recommended in the first grade in Waldorf schools. It's exciting, and so beautifully imaginative. Read it to your child, or to yourself. It's part mystery.....

This will be read over many times and I hope to read it to my grandchildren when my 4 grow up! Love the story!

My children (ages 12, 8, and 6) just loved this story when we read it a couple years back. I just bought us a copy for our own for my son's 9th birthday. We just finished The House Above the Trees and my son loved the Wind Boy.

I have the original 1923 edition of The Wind Boy, and it is my favorite book of all time. Sheer poetry, with a timeless message of grace and redemption, compassion and the healing power of creativity that will touch something deep in every child and every adult who reads it.

Sadly, after WW2, the author was persuaded to "modernize" some of the language for a new edition, perhaps thinking that modern children would not be able to relate to words like "porridge." The changes are not an improvement. But the story is still beautiful, and several of my young friends have read and enjoyed it.

If you can find and afford the original, by all means, buy it. If not, buy this one; it is too beautiful a story to pass up.

The Wind Boy is one of my daughter's new favorite books. The plot is simple, yet engaging. The characters in the story are refreshing. The text has some words that others may consider outdated, however, we found it enjoyable to rediscover new words. Beautiful book!

Bought this book to read to my daughters when they were younger. They are now in their 20s and we all remember this book with such fondness. It is just a sweet story that brings to mind the word imagination. Just good, clean, fun.

A sweet, charming read!
Many years ago (about 11, in fact) I was sitting for a family that had this book. The baby of the family was still napping, so while she napped I took this book off one of the older kids book shelf and read it. It looked interesting and at the time I was into things that were spiritual. Wind Boy filled me with joy! I fell in love with it. Bought it once and lent is out, but it never came back to me. I decided I loved it so much I must buy it again.

For something that you are not expecting in children's books this is for you. The story meanders it's way through. Not fast paced, but gentle, like a stroll through the forest.
