What are you waiting for? An owl, a puppy, a bear, a rabbit, and a pig wait for marvellous things to happen in this irresistible and resonant picture book by the New York Times, bestselling and Caldecott Medalist Kevin Henkes.

Five friends sit happily on a windowsill, waiting for something amazing to happen. The owl is waiting for the moon. The pig is waiting for the rain. The bear is waiting for the wind. The puppy is waiting for the snow. And the rabbit is just looking out the window because he likes to wait! What will happen? Will patience win in the end? Or someday will the friends stop waiting and do something unexpected? Waiting is a big part of childhood — waiting in line, waiting to grow up, waiting for something special to happen but in this book, a child sets the stage and pulls the strings.

Timeless, beautiful, and deeply heartfelt, this picture book about imaginative play, the seasons, friendship, and surprises is a Caldecott Honor andGeisel Honor Book. Share Waiting alongside Mo Willems's Waiting Is Not Easy at home or in a classroom— these books about waiting for kids will be enjoyed as picture book stories and also allow kids to explore their emotions about that ultimate frustration: waiting.
