Product Description
Waiting Is Not Easy! by Mo Williems
Waiting Is Not Easy! In this fun story, Piggie has a surprise for Gerald, but he is going to have to wait for it. And Wait. And wait some more. This is very hard for Gerald. He at first is so excited that he can not wait. He begins asking Piggie lots of questions. When Piggie still won’t tell him he tries to wait but it is getting harder. He goes through the emotions of frustration and worry that the surprise will never come. The pictures capture these emotions which allow for students to better grasp feelings. At the end, Gerald is glad he waited.

Using children's books to teach social skills is an excellent way to engage students in topics they need to learn or practice. Many children’s books are easily available and often familiar to students. Most students (even older ones) enjoy stories read to them and are more motivated to learn the concepts than through direct teaching. Because stores are fun and pleasurable for many children, being read to feels like a leisure activity during class time. Students also tend to relate the emotions of the characters and can easily provide discussion into how they should think, feel, or act.
