Waiting Is Not Forever

Waiting Is Not Forever

Toddlers learn skills for being patient that make waiting easier for everyone.

Toddlers live in the moment. When they want something, they want it now. But learning self-control and delayed gratification will set up young children for success in school and in social settings. Practicing patience is the key. With her trademark mix of empathy and encouragement, author Elizabeth Verdick acknowledges that waiting can be frustrating and offers toddlers simple ideas to make waiting easier. Little ones can use waiting time to watch the world around them, listen to music, tell stories, sing songs, whisper, play games, build with Legos, draw pictures, move or stretch, and more. Children learn, "I can wait a while. I can do it with a smile."

In this twelfth addition to the best-selling Best Behavior board book series, Marieka Heinlen's vivid illustrations of young children interacting with their caregivers and families bring warmth and fun to every spread. The book closes with tips to help parents and care providers foster patience in young children.
