Publisher's Description

Annie’s Jar of Patience

Annie is always in a hurry to get what she wants. Her excitement turns quickly into impatience, stealing joy from her and those around her. When Annie’s rushing almost ruins a special day, â·¨an old family tradition teaches a lesson in patience she’ll never forget. Learn to identify impatience, evaluate options, and delay gratification with the patience of an MVP Kid.

This diverse book features a range of families and diversity in positive ways. The MVP Kids span diverse cultures, ethnicities, religions, family situations, physical challenges, education, and professions. Some are the only child in their family; others have large families. Some are recent immigrants; others date back to the Pilgrims. The diversity allows children to see themselves in the pages of the book while also seeing positive interaction with others who are different.

Editorial Reviews

“Many authors and publishers include diversity in their books as if they’re checking off a box to fulfill a requirement. Sophia Day does something extraordinary. She helps us realize that diversity in character, family composition, abilities, interests, and backgrounds is the norm not the exception.”
