The Wind in the Willows - Kenneth Grahame

The Wind in the Willows is a classic for all ages. This book is free for the kindle. Fall is a great time to read this story.

The classic story of Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad is a great read. It has talking animals, but it's not just a kid's book. This is an adventure even adults can enjoy. Take chapter nine - Wayfarers All, where Rat is restless and "there was a feeling in the air of change and departure." This chapter is adult fair that perfectly captures the feelings mid-westerners have when fall sneaks up on us. Or chapter three - Wild Wood, where Mole is tramping through a bare winter day "when Nature was deep in her annual slumber and seemed to have kicked the clothes off." A good book is always worth reading one more time. Very highly recommended.
