#blogbookaday: What Are You Waiting For?

31 Jul

What Are You Waiting ForSummary:  “What are you waiting for?
Is it quiet?
Does it have wings?
Will I miss it if I blink?

Join a badger and a rabbit in this simple tale about the wonder of anticipation that follows the two friends in search of a surprise. What they find might just surprise you, too.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: A sweet book about a badger and rabbit friend who wait all day for something special. As they wait, Badger asks Rabbit question after question, trying to figure out what they’re waiting for, but Rabbit doesn’t wasn’t to ruin the surprise and answers the questions, but keeps Badger guessing all day long. And the surprise is definitely worth the wait and one I didn’t see coming!

Personal Reaction: This is an adorable, quiet story about patience, friendship and surprises. I loved the back and forth text which would be fun to read with a partner and the sweet, pencil and pastel sketches are the perfect compliment to the text.

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
