A Page in the Wind
A whimsical and moving story about discovering your purpose.
The last little newspaper on a newsstand wonders what its life will be like until a gust of wind sends its individual pages flying. Each page travels to a different place and experiences a vastly different life—from being used to clean a mirror and line the cage of a pet to being formed into a boat by a child and sheltering a homeless person from the cold—until, at last, the final page finds it’s true calling. Sanabria’s expressive art and thoughtful story reflect many ways our lives can be touched.
This is one to be looked at several times to fully appreciate its quiet message. A thoughtful contemplation on how our lives are affected by our interactions.
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
One wants to slow down while enjoying this lovely book. What is it all about? Belonging, finding one’s true meaning and purpose in life, making connections? And what does the paper say on its last page that makes a man so happy? We can’t know for sure, but the illustration invites us to take a guess. It’s an intriguing ending to an enchanting picture book.
