Can't Wait Willow

“Can’t Wait Willow” is about a little girl, Willow, who is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! Unfortunately, though, she has a hard time saying “no” to some good things on the way to the show. She gets there late and is sad to find that, not only has she has run out of time, but money as well! Now she won’t be able to have the pink cotton candy she’s been dreaming of. Willow is given valuable advice and a second chance and learns an important lesson: sometimes in life you have to say “no” to good things to end up with something great!

Our kids really enjoyed “Can’t Wait Willow.” It was a fun and engaging story with beautiful illustration. Plus, they obviously got to learn the important lesson along with Willow! That is something I appreciate when there is a lesson within the story. Even our 3 year old asks us to read the story over and over again. The excitement of the circus, characters, etc. is really fun for them! Along the way, the star also helps show the emotions Willow is feeling, so they can understand emotions as well! The lesson they learn is also important because kids often struggle with learning delayed gratification and can only think of the here and now. “Can’t Wait Willow” is a great reminder of the rewards for waiting!
