A hilariously accurate book about the struggles of finding patience. A great book to read with children about how hard waiting can be, and how great it can be when we do wait.

Waiting is definitely not easy, especially for Elephant

Piggie has a surprise for Gerald, but he has to wait...and Waiting Is Not Easy! (But it's worth it.) ( )

Piggie has a surprise for elephant but he has to wait for it. Elephant has no patience and it starts driving him crazy. In the end, he learned there are somethings worth waiting for.

When Piggie tells Gerald that she has a surprise for him he instantly gets excited and his patience level is tested. What I enjoy about this book is that it shows us how if we are patient enough we will be rewarding in the end. This is the message that Mo Willems is trying to teach his young readers. I also can’t get enough of the comic book format with the caption bubbles! ( )
