Why does it take so long??
This story is about a young boy and his grandmother who are waiting and waiting, with young people normally find incredibly annoying. While they wait and wait, they also knit, sing, dance, and try to pass the time until what they're waiting for finally arrives.
We can't tell the ending. You have to get the book to find out what happens. It's worth the wait!
We like this book for two reason: 1) It can be used to learn and keeping yourself busy to cure anticipation or boredom and 2) Knitting is something anyone can do...even boys!
This book is perfect for the preschool - first grade much who are learning the important social emotional skills involved with waiting and you can also use this book to discuss intergenerational families.
