Product Description

The circus has come to town and Willow is so excited to go! On her way to the show, Willow gets sidetracked by the ice cream truck, her friends playing soccer, an exotic bird cage, and a purple stuffed elephant, and finds that she's run out of time, and money, for the show. Willow learns an important lesson---that sometimes you have to say no to good things to say yes to the best!

    A Lesson in Self-Control

    Ever struggle with wanting something now? The desire to satisfy every longing in our hearts begins at an early age. We want it, we need it, we can't live without it -- words all too familiar and dangerous. They carry over into adulthood if one is not taught to have self-control.

    In the children's story, Can't-Wait Willow!, by Christy Ziglar, we're introduced to an adorable little girl on her way to the circus. However, she's distracted along the way by many different things. These things vie for her time and money. In the end, she arrives late to the circus and short of funds to enter. She's quite upset with herself, but what can she do but cry? As she ponders her actions, a kindly man approaches and offers her a ticket to the final show, the next day. Willow is given a second chance.

    Though the same temptations assault her on the second day, Willow has determined not to allow them to distract her from her purpose. She makes it to the circus just in time and is even given a special little reward too!

    I think this hardcover book is an excellent read for children and adults! From the bright colorful illustrations, to the type of the text, and most importantly the story line, Can't-Wait Willow! is a book I'd recommend to anyone with children. Sometimes in life we think we need to have or do everything we see with our eyes. The things we choose may not be bad for us, but in the end they can distract us from our ultimate goal. Unfortunately, like Willow, we may not get a second chance. I believe that teaching self-control at a young age can enable children to learn that instant gratification is not always best. Sometimes it is better to wait!

    This is a lesson on delayed gratification that needs to be established and established early!! I loved the book. It was a well written story that will appeal to kids and explains a concept in a way that they can understand. Willow knows what she wants, but lets other temptations take away her money and her time. As your child (or you and your child) read this, look for Ziggle each time Willow makes a decision. If it is a good choice, Ziggle the Star will be brightly shining. If it is not a wise decision, Ziggle will will be more lackluster and dejected. The illustrations are fabulous for letting even a nonreader know exactly what is going on. This book brings up great talking points between parent and child, and allows the child to think through the decisions Willow makes for a greater understanding of waiting for the best.

    I'm so excited to see someone address a huge need--teaching children that choices have consequences. Willow is an adorable character in a beautifully illustrated book, but best of all, she learns an important lesson and gives the oppotunity for an adult to have a teachable moment with a child. I look forward to more in the Shine Bright Kid series!
