About the Book



A magical adventure that celebrates the wonderful inquisitiveness of all children



Book Synopsis



Winner of the silver medal in the Moonbeam Children's Books Award in the Picture Book 4-8-year-old category from Independent Publisher

Winner of the Gelett Burgess Children's Book Award

Noah knew he was different. He could see things that others couldn't, like the patterns in the dust that floated down on sunbeams.

Noah is different. He sees, hears, feels, and thinks in ways that other people don't always understand, and he asks a lot of questions along the way. Noah loves science, especially the weather. His books usually provide him with the answers he needs, until one day, there's one question they don't answer--and that is where Noah's windy adventure begins.

Filled with rich, sweeping illustrations, this picture book celebrates the inquisitive nature of all children, including those on the autism spectrum, who cannot stop asking a question until an answer has been unearthed.

The book contains a page of information for parents, caregivers, and educators about the importance of helping children feel good about their differences and know that being different is okay.

Michelle Worthington was born in Brisbane, Queensland, and has lived there all her life. She is much-published author in Australia.

Joseph Cowman lives and paints in the hills and valleys of suburban Idaho. He is a long-standing member of the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators. He is the illustrator of six other Redleaf Lane books, including most recently, The Amazing Erik and Rita and the Firefighters.




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
