Waiting Is Not Easy!
Children's - Kindergarten, Age 5-6
Make Way For BooksEach page's white background is a clean slate for comic-like, over-simplified illustrations of Elephant and Gerald (his pink pig friend). Elephant can hardly wait for Gerald's surprise — young readers can easily recognize expressions of impatience, anticipation, and frustration. Even an the exaggerated word illustration: GROAN! takes on a life of its own. A celebration of friendship, trust, and wonder.
