While We Wait
From 3 to 7 | 32 pages
A gentle play on patience while a boy and his grandma knit the perfect gift
A boy and his grandmother are waiting for … something. While they wait, they sit and knit, they stretch, they rock, they dance, they snack, and they talk. But still, time passes slowly.
As the hours go by, they fill the day together. They sit and knit and wait. Until—it’s finally time! The long wait is over when the boy’s parents come home with a special arrival. We see what the boy and his grandma have been creating together: a handmade gift for the newest member of their family, created with love.
With a soft color palette and simple, lyrical text lending a rhythmic beat, While We Wait is a sweet lesson in patience that shows some things are well worth the wait.Judy Ann Sadler, Élodie Duhameau
