This time, Mr. Panda's black-and-white animal friends are curious what he's making, but only one has the patience to stick around. An alpaca, an aardvark, rabbits, and a bird all wind up missing out. It's the penguin who declares, "I'll wait, Mr. Panda." The penguin is rewarded with a big SURPRISE: a giant doughnut!
I'll Wait, Mr. Panda is a graphic, kid-friendly way of teaching the value of patience and the importance of saying "thank you."

I loved Please, Mr. Panda, so I was super excited to see that Steve Anthony had written another character lesson book using Mr. Panda. In this story, Mr. Panda is mixing something up in a bowl. Various animals come along asking what he is making. He tells them they have to wait. It's a surprise. The only animal patient enough to wait is a small penguin, but he's in for a big treat at the end. It turns out Panda is making a giant donut. This book is cute. The text is simple. The illustrations are sweet (although not as fun as Please, Mr. Panda because there aren't as many donuts). The moral is simple - if you are patient, you will be rewarded. It's an easy enough concept for kids to grasp, and it's written in a fun and engaging way. The page with the bunny features a bunch of little bunny butts disappearing into holes while they're all saying, "Good-bye." I know this page would have been the highlight when my son was younger. This book is perfect for ages 2-5. http://www.momsradius.com/2016/10/kid-lit-ill-wait-mr-panda.html
