Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You
Cora June can't wait for her school day to finish because her mom is picking her up and taking her to her most favourite place in the whole wide world... Slushy Shack. She knows exactly what she will order. She will politely ask for a yummy Unicorn Yak slushy! She announces to her class in a loud, disruptive voice, that the Unicorn Yak sushy includes cotton candy with sprinkles on top! Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! She's pumped to go.
The day drags on and Cora June gets more and more excited as she awaits the arrival of her mom.. who is late! Oh my! Where is she? Finally she hops in the car and they are off to Slushy Shack. When they arrive she discovers the line-up is long and she gets even more impatient. When it's her turn to step up and order she is devastated to find out they are all sold out of her favourite drink and she bursts into tears. She is told to come back tomorrow. Her dreams are dashed and she doesn't know how she can hold her emotions together until then.
Her wise Mom helps Cora June develop her patience muscle and convinces her that good things come to those who wait. The illustrations are fantastic, full of emotion and fun. This book is perfect for parents, caregivers, and educators. The author includes tips for adults on how to help children practice patience, stay calm, and make good choices. Both children and adults can benefit from the wisdom in this book. I highly recommend it.
