Description

A gentle picture book that examines the issue of patience in a reassuring way - perfect for young children who struggle with waiting their turn. The story offers a way in to talk about our frustrations and how we can manage them, reinforcing good behaviour. At the end of the story, there are notes for parents and teachers with suggestions of ways to help children deal with the big emotions they experience. Maisy hates waiting for anything. She gets really cross if she has to wait her turn, at school or at home. When her sister Lola is late, and then Maisy has to wait for her to play, Maisy is really cross and upset. Lola teaches her some ways to be more patient. But will Maisy be able to show more patience at the park the following day? This book is part of a series, OUR EMOTIONS AND BEHAVIOUR, which is perfect for sharing with children as a gentle means of identifying and discussing their emotions, boosting their confidence and helping social and emotional development. Each book has a fun story which is backed up by suggestions for activities and ideas to talk through together and a wordless storyboard for children to tell a story themselves and reinforce the story's message. The series supports the Personal, Social and Emotional Development Area of Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
