The Wind in the Willows

The Wind in the Willows - Kenneth Grahame, Gillian Avery I never had the opportunity to read Wind in the Willows as a child and it is great to finally get to read this book as an adult, I am not entirely sure I would have enjoyed this as an 8-10 year old girl as the language is a little stiff and proper for a child and also for the fact there are no girls in the story.

I think it would make a fantastic read aloud book to a child as I can imagine putting voices to all the characters.

The Wind in the Willows book is a classic tale of animals and river life and friendship.
The characters are wonderful and I especially liked Mole and Ratty and I found Toad funny and sometimes annoying.

A nice story and I always find something comforting in reading a classic children’s book. I will keep adding them to my reading list and enjoy those comforting moments!
