My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Waiting for stuff to happen is one of the joys of life, really. Christmas is great; but waiting for Christmas, the expectation, the build up, the fun of imaging what Santa is going to bring you - that’s the real deal. Kevin Henkes book explores this idea through the “lives” of a set of toys in a window, waiting on the moon, or rain, or snow, or for a child to come play with them. Lots of deep ideas here about what it means to wait, what a life of waiting means, what happens after the waiting stops. Challenging and interesting book, with Henkes great illustrations (as usual).
