How the Wind Found a Home
by Drew Perry

Before people or animals lived in the world, winds blew all the time. When people and animals came along and had their own homes to rest in, the sister wind, Breeze, and her brother wind, Zephyr, become jealous. They want a home too, and decide to go looking for their own place to rest.

Trouble starts when Breeze finds a nice, big cave and decides there isn’t enough room for Zephyr! The sister and brother argue and fight over the cave, causing a giant storm. Who will get to use the cave? How will they ever work things out?

This story is suitable for young children under ten years old, and to be read aloud to pre-schoolers.

Drew (he/him) lives in Winnipeg, Canada, with his wife Valerie. He worked for many years in child care and social services, and he is also a certified Iyengar yoga teacher. He's had lots of practice reading stories aloud to his children and grandchildren, as well as enjoying writing stories and verse just for the fun of it.

Inspired by recent summer vacations with his grandchildren on the shores of a windy lake, he’s enjoyed creating short bedtime stories for children, including this tale about Zephyr and Breeze's efforts to find their own home.
