Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ginjer L. Clarke
Kids hate to wait. This rhyming picture book for older readers commiserates with all the things kids have to be patient about. Its line drawings and chicken-scratch type may not appeal to parents, but kids will probably like the edginess and simplicity, as well as the contemporary problems it presents, such as waiting for the printer to print or a download to finish. It is hard to have fun with a book that aims to teach a lesson, especially one as unwelcome as the need to be patient, but the book does the best it can with the subject matter. The dual message seems to be that good things are worth waiting for and annoying things will pass if you wait long enough. The ending, which states that waiting for school to finish is unendurable, may not be the positive image parents want kids to have about school, but many kids will relate and be glad to know they are not alone in their frustration and impatience.
