Patience is a virtue, even for little puppies. Does waiting for good things drive you up the wall? It's hard to wait your turn in a line at an amusement park when the ride is whirling by you. It's hard t to go grabbing candy out of the candy bowl before the teacher says its okay. When the waitress sets the dinner plate on the table in front of you, it's hard t to reach for the tasty hot food before it cools. Those are the times when we say to ourselves or someone else Why Wait? I Want It Now! This picture book shows a puppy that feels the same way when she's hungry. Waiting and obeying are hard for the dog when wonderful things are just at a little paw's reach.
