5.0 out of 5 stars Little Owl's Big Wait January 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Little Owl's Big Wait was a big hit with the preschool children. At the end of the first read, I asked if any of them ever had to wait for something they really wanted and they had a discussion on how hard it was to wait when you want something. In the dramatic play area during free play time, they set up a pretend birthday party where the one child had to wait for the mother to set up the party. The actions of the children indicated that they book had meaning for them and they transferred the lesson in the book into the play scenario they developed. They also requested it to be re-read in the library section of the room during free play and this is just the first day it was used with the class of four-year-olds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, cute book! February 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this to my granddaughter almost every day before her nap. She loves it and so do I! She's 3 1/2 and although I don't think she understands the concept of being patient and waiting, she loves that the little owl wants to help her mother. I love the colorful pictures and I have always loved owls. This book is so perfect for both of us!
