Book Review: Bartholomew Biddle and the Very Big Wind by Gary Ross
Bartholomew Biddle and the Very Big Wind is an interesting book. The verse is very well done, as are the full page illustrations. Together they which capture the imagination and take you along with Bartholomew and his journey. I am generally avoid books, aside from picture books, told in verse. At 96 pages this is well past picture book stage, but because of the well turned verse and the vivid illustrations this book can appeal to all ages.
Bartholomew Biddle and the Very Big Wind is recommended for age 6 and older, and can capture the imagination of any reader that has pondered escaping to an adventure, not unlike that of Bartholomew.
I recommend Bartholomew Biddle and the Very Big Wind as an addition to a home or library collection. It is a little to long for a traditional story time, but would work well as a bed time story or sharing with one or two children.
