Opening Lines of the Book…
Everything is ready,
there’s nothing left to do.
Grandma says, to fill the time,
let’s sit and
knit and


This is a lovely book about a grandma and her oh-so-impatient grandson as they wait, wait, wait! They sit and knit (or at least Gran knits!) and stretch and rock. And wait. I had my suspicions about what they’re waiting for (and I was right), but when the moment came it was done in such a beautiful way that I was deeply moved! Such a lovely picture book!

I also found the art to be quite appealing. I love how both Gran and the boy have glasses!


12 months to feature 12 picture books…

This picture book review is part of a monthly challenge I’ve set for myself. Have a recommendation for me? I’d love to hear about it in the comments. (Published within the past 3 years, please!). I may just feature your pick one of these months!
