Waiting is not easy is about an elephant who is talking to a pig. The pig tells the elephant that they have to wait for the surprise but throughout the book the elephant struggles with his patience of waiting for the surprise.
Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:
Waiting is not easy could be used to show the students that waiting is not an easy task at all and to help children learn patience. The teacher could have the students write about a time where they could not wait for something and then tell why it was or was not worth waiting for in the end.
Reading Level & Leveling System:
Lower Grades K-3
I would rate this book a 4 because it does teach young children patience and its not a easy task to comprehend but the way the book is written it shows the elephants reactions and comments about waiting. This isn’t something young children are used to, so I think it’s a good thing for them to learn.
