Wait by Antoinette Portis is about a boy who sees many interesting sights while his mother holds his hand and wants to hurry. For a young child, stopping to watch portis_waitconstruction or pet a dog is a valuable use of time and this book reminds the reader of those little moments we need to take to enjoy everyday life. The illustrations show the story: the mother is hurrying to catch a train, and every time they stop, it makes them a bit later. In the end, however, the child and mother agree to wait and watch the beauty of a double rainbow.
