A heart-felt story with a mythical family that all parents will relate to. The child, Winter, has to wait for his busy parents to finish work so they can play. Whimsical illustrations. Even my younger kids enjoy it.

I can't begin to explain how excited I was when this book came out. I am a big fan of the author's first book on the beauty of the seasons-Wild Child set in Autumn, and to see that another book has been written in the same style with the same beautiful illustrations had me ready to run outside in the snow and enjoy the beauty of the outside world. I am a children's bookseller at Barnes and Noble and this book as well as Wild Child are on my highly reccomended list for my customers. I am a big fan of children's books that incorporate nature and its many wonders in a poetic and easy to understand format and this book is on the A list. The depictions of Winter and Father Time and the winter words that are put into play throughout the story are wonderful. This is an eye catching easy to read and understand book for children. I have read it at my story times before and it is always a big hit. Add this to your children's bookshelf, you will be happy that you did

As the author of this book, I was excited to continue the story of Nature's family. In WILD CHILD, Autumn and Mother Earth told the universal story of a child not wanting to go to bed. In this sequel book, WINTER WAITS, Winter and Father Time tell the universal story of a parent being too busy to play with a child. But Winter is a persistent young lad. He keeps busy while he waits for his father to finish setting the world's clocks--he 'whistens and glistens' the world in frost, then 'chimmers and chisels' a frozen waterfall into an ice sculpture, and then finally 'sprools and sprinkles' snowflakes all over the earth. Each time he returns to his father to see if he's ready to play yet. At last, Father Time realizes that playing with his son is more important than work and they 'wristle and wrestle, frisk and frolic, scuffle and scamper away.' Once again, as in WILD CHILD, Greg Couch's illustrations are magnificent. His blues, pinks, purples, and turquoises set a wintry mood. And his Father Time is a collection of many visual time references--a sun dial nose, half-moon face, a constellation body, etc. And Winter's special gift to his father is a magnificent snowflake that seems to glow in its radiant beauty. This book is about the gift a time--one of the most precious gifts we all have--a gift I hope we all can learn to savor and enjoy!
