Everyone waits. What do you wait for? How do you wait?

The Picture Book of the Week is Waiting, written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes.

About the Book:

Waiting is the story of five toys, an owl, a pig, a bear, a puppy, and a rabbit. They sit on a windowsill, each of them waiting for something. Sometimes they get what they are waiting for, but mostly they wait. How do they pass the time? Are they bored?

Writing Exercise for Kids:

What are you waiting for? Think about what you are waiting for. It can be a big thing, like a vacation, or a little thing, like waiting for the rain to stop. Draw a picture of yourself waiting like the five toys in the story.

¿Qué esperas tu? Piensa en algo que estas esperando. Puede ser algo grande como unas vacaciones, o puede ser algo pequeño, como esperar que deje de llover. Haz un dibujo de ti mismo/a esperando como los cinco juguetes del cuento

I would love to see your pictures. If you are willing to share, please send stories to stories@alicia-salazar.com.

Happy Writing!
