What a sweet and soft picture book! 5 friends wait on a window sill watching their world go by. The owl waits for the moon, the pig for the rain, the bear for the wind, the puppy for snow and the rabbit just waits and watches. waiting friendThey had a visitor once, but he went away. waiting catThen a cat came to stay and waited for a big surprise.

The illustrations are beautiful and soft, simple and expressive at the same time. This is the perfect book to read at night, just before bed because it reminds the reader of how nice it is to simply wait sometimes.waiting fireworks

Rating 4 out of 5 paws for the gentle lesson it teaches.
