When you think of a windmill, what comes to mind? For many of us, we think of the old-fashioned, Dutch-style windmills that are often seen in picturesque paintings. But did you know that there are many different types of windmills? And that there are many children’s books about windmills? In this blog post, we will list some of the best children’s books about windmills.
The first book on our list is The Windmill by Arnold Lobel. This book is about a windmill that comes to life and helps a group of animals escape from a farmer who wants to harm them. The illustrations in this book are beautiful and the story is very touching.
The next book on our list is The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. This classic book is about a group of animals who live near a river. One of the animals, Mr. Toad, becomes obsessed with a new invention called a motor car. This book is full of adventure and is a timeless classic.
The third book on our list is Windmill by Paul Fleischman. This book is about a windmill that is built in a small town in the United States. The townspeople are very excited about the windmill and all of the possibilities it brings. However, when the windmill is finally built, it does not work the way they had hoped. This is a great book that teaches children about the importance of perseverance.
The fourth book on our list is The Wind in the Door by Madeleine L’Engle. This book is about a group of children who are able to enter into another world through a door in a windmill. In this other world, they help a creature called a murry defeat an evil enemy. This is a great book for children who are interested in science fiction.
The fifth and final book on our list is The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. This book is about a mouse who is different from all of the other mice in his colony. He is much smaller and does not like to eat cheese. Despereaux is made fun of by the other mice, but he does not let that stop him from becoming a hero. This is a great book for children who are different and who are looking for a book with a great message of acceptance.
