Maisy is never patient. She hates waiting for her birthday, waiting to talk, waiting for attention from her sister. She interrupts, scowls, and stomps around. Everyone gets mad, and Maisy feels bad. After talking with her sister about ways to make waiting easier, Maisy starts a new approach. Eventually, she learns that having patience makes life calmer—and sometimes much nicer.
A special section for adults suggests discussion questions and ideas for guiding children to talk about their feelings.
