The Wait tells the story of a family with a pet cat, welcoming the addition of a newborn.
From the perspective of the cat, we witness the changes in the home due to the arrival of the new baby. As a member of the family, the cat looks forward to getting to know its new little owner.
In the beginning, it seemed as if a barrier was built between the cat and its original owners. The little baby also did not seem to care for its presence.
However, because of the love the cat has for its human family, it tolerates the circumstances and waits patiently...
The cat can't wait for the child to grow up in this book, but it is also an analogy for many parents' wish for their children to grow up happy and healthy.
The number of characters in this book is only around 80 words, but through the lifelike illustrations, the fresh and funny narration, it highlights the love parents have for their children. A great addition to your bookshelf to be read together.
