I Don’t Want to Wait!

A Book About Being Patient

$15.99

SKU: D230-Net

Maisy is never patient. She hates waiting for her birthday, waiting to talk, waiting for attention from her sister. She interrupts, scowls, and stomps around. Everyone gets mad, and Maisy feels bad. After talking with her sister about ways to make waiting easier, Maisy starts a new approach. Eventually, she learns that having patience makes life calmer—and sometimes much nicer.

The Our Emotions and Behavior series uses cheerful brightly illustrated stories to help kids understand how their emotions and actions are related—and how they can learn to manage both. At the end of each book, a two-page series of pictures invites kids to tell a story in their own words. A special section for adults suggests discussion questions and ideas for guiding children to talk about their feelings.
