    1. The kids enjoyed this album? Though I guess, upon the first read, I wondered what kind of message that was? It couldn't possibly have been the sooooo very redundant love at first sight or something, right? Because it's a bear unless are we talking about beastiality. what have I read to the childreN?! I'm kidding, it's probably something like, friends who are worth it are worth waiting for, but then, I feel like you have to go through your fair share of bad friends in order to know who's good and [...]

    2. I love this mysterious picture book! If I still belonged to a book club, I would recommend this (for all the people who have a hard time finishing a novel during their busy lives) and listen to how they interpret it. At first I thought, oh hell no, she is NOT waiting for some man to come into her life, is she? And then when a prince comes (among several other visitors over the course of a long time), she tells him she can't marry him because she is waiting for someone. Love it. A bear would be w [...]

    3. Today, Maybe is a story about a little girl who is waiting for a friend. Even though she does not know who that friend will be she patiently waits. As days go by a variety of characters come by to "steal" her away but she always has a reason that she can't leave. Each of the characters that she encounters are familiar to those who have ever read children's stories. Finally at the end of the story her friend arrives.This is a beautiful illustrated book that will keep all the readers intrigued as [...]

    4. Umm, I think I missed something.Because I do not get this one.Why couldn't she be friends with anyone else? Why the bear? What made the bear special over the other characters? It's like a "love-at-first-sight" picture book for kids. The message, apparently, was over my head!I enjoyed the illustrations, thus the two stars.

    5. Beautifully illustrated quirky story of a young girl who lives in the woods alone surviving on jam and bread waiting for the day that "he will come." She does not know who this "he" is but she is sure she has been waiting for his arrival for a long time.

    6. Sweet story as a girl waits for someone, not knowing who it is, but knowing who it isn't as other visitors arrive. The end is a bit saccharine, but it fits with the sweetness of the story and illustrations.

    7. I think the kids were a little confused with this story, but it was a nice folktale-esque book for storytelling. I especially loved the message at the end, "True friendships are worth waiting for", which is so, so true. So kids, don't be worried if you haven't found a true best friend yet!

    8. Folkloric in feel, this is the story of an intrepid little girl willing to wait for what she wants. A nice concept.

    9. I don't entirely understand it right now, but it's cute and I like how unwavering and unbullied the girl is.
