Can't - Wait Willow! ~ Book Review & GIVEAWAY

I want.  I want.  I want.

Sometimes it is so hard to say "no".   Can't - Wait Willow! is a wonderful story about a little girl who has a hard time saying "no" to some good things, even when something great is just around the corner.

Willow is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! The only problem is, that when left to her own devices, she can’t say “no” to some good things. On the way to the show, she is distracted by enticing treats and fun that she just can’t turn down. Willow arrives late and is sad to find that, not only has she has run out of time, but money, and she won’t be able to enjoy the pink cotton candy she’s been dreaming of. Willow is given valuable advice and a second chance and is ultimately taught the lesson that sometimes in life you have to say “no” to good things to end up with something great!

Author, Christy Ziglar, is a financial planner, mother of twins and niece of legendary motivator and the world’s original optimist, Zig Ziglar.  As part of the Shine Bright Kids series, Can't-Wait Willow! instills the values of taking responsibility and having self-control.  Oh, to learn delayed gratification is such a challenge!  Spending the day with Willow in this story will help bridge this topic with your child.  I even read it with my 13 year old son.  Yes, he thought it was too childish for him, but the message was right on the nose!  He decided to keep the money he had been saving for an item he has been wanting for a while instead of spending it on a video game.  Thanks, Willow!

You and your child will also enjoy the beautiful illustrations by Luanne Marten.  The vibrant colors and whimsical scenery are stunning.  Sweet Willow is so curious about her world that it makes it even harder to say "no".  But she receives a second chance and learns a life lesson.  I just love a happy ending.
