The purpose of the story is to get children to think beyond instant gratification and see how their current decisions have consequences later. The moral is: "Sometimes you've got to say 'no' to the good, so you can say 'yes' to the best." Thankfully, the man who shares the moral also offers Willow grace in the form of a ticket for tomorrow's show and the circus is everything Willow imagined it would be and more...
A neat feature of the book is the little star on each page that helps parent and child to discuss the choices Willow makes along her journey. Talking about consequences and how one decision impacts another can help children make more thoughtful choices in their own lives.
Can't Wait Willow is the first book from Shine Bright Kids -- a book series that provides children and their families the opportunity to discuss key life skills through the sweet stories of Willow and her friends.
