There is such a thing as a perfect picture book - because here is "Waiting," by Caldecott-winner, Kevin Henkes. This quiet gem of a book lets us into the lives of five toys waiting on a windowsill. The lives of children include a lot of waiting, sometimes for things they don't even know about, sometimes without explanation. Nobody explains anything to the toys, but they are content to wait: because sooner or later, something will happen. "Waiting" would make an absolutely priceless baby shower gift - but will I tell you why? No, you'll have to wait and see for yourself. My new favorite picture book. ~ Reviewed by Jennifer Armstrong
