Good Review of Whirl Wind

A very good review of Jennifer R. Resetar's children's book, Whirl Wind by reviewer Gary from Midwest Book Review.

"Whirlwind" begins with third grader Alex Johnson walking a short distance to school. Despite having a disability of cerebral palsy he does not let it get him down. Shortly into his walk he is approached by someone who calls his name even though Alex doesn't know him. Alex is told he is a super hero even though he has his disability. He is given a costume and will be known as Whirlwind, who will help others in their time of need. The story is interesting while showing that people with disabilities are the same as anyone else in the world, just a little different It also deals with how vicious others can be to each other and how intolerance is dealt with. "Whirlwind" is a great first of a series of kid's books that has interesting characters and many positive lessons to learn.


  1. Congrats, Jenny! Sounds like a wonderfully inspiring story!

  2. I had an opportunity to read this lovely little book along with my two daughters. They go to a small school mainly to get away from bullying but it still exists. Their school has programs specially designed for disabled children so there are a lot that attend in the hopes that they will be accepted and included but bullying does still exist. This book is an excellent tool for parents to help their young students to be strong and positive in spite of this and that just because a person has a disability doesn't mean they can't do the same things or be the same as all the other kids. I think it's a great read for both entertainment as well as education. Mrs. Resetar articulates well and can relate to her characters, having walked the life and mastered the obstacles, and coming out a stronger, richer person. Terrific book, terrific person.

    1. Thank you for your wonderful comments Tracy and Bree! :)
