Book Review: "The Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame

In this section, we would like to recommend a children's book which is worth reading for both adults and children. This week we’d like to talk about "The Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame, timeless classic about Toad's adventures and his friends.

The novel begins with Mole, a peace-loving little animal, who leaves his underground house into a new world filled with sunlight and fresh spring air. He soon meets a new friend Ratty, who enjoys nothing more than "messing about in boats." After a number of pleasant afternoons having picnics and spending time on the river, Mole and Ratty decide to visit Ratty's friends: Toad who obsessed with carts and motor cars and he is brave and clever.  He also meets Mr. Badger. From that moment on, the four friends together experience changes and learn life lessons.

"The Wind in the Willows" is a children's story that lives in the hearts and minds of its readers well into adulthood. With its very-British humor, the story confirms the power of close friends and courage to make a difference in the lives of others.
