With young folks in mind, Susan VanderVeen wrote a story that brings wind power into an every-day child’s life. Illustrated by Betsy VanderVeen Rutz, Farming the Wind (© 2009 Susan P. VanderVeen) explores wind power from a child’s perspective. After the typical long search for a publisher, the author-illustrator team is very happy to have landed a contract with Raven Productions in Ely, Minnesota. Raven does a wonderful job of teaching young people how to enjoy and protect the natural world. http://www.ravenwords.com/
Coming in 2012, this children’s book by Michigan natives is created in the spirit of this ArtPrize piece, Win, Win Wind! – encouraging the harnessing of the wind to protect our planet, transform our economy, and work towards energy independence.
