In Time

by Marina Ruiz (Author) Marina Ruiz (Illustrator)

Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade
Follow the story of a little girl as she learns to slow down, be patient, and appreciate that some things in life are worth waiting for.

When you’re little, the world can seem like a truly slow-moving place. Waiting for school to finish, staring at the clock, wishing it would move. Joining seemingly never-ending queues, urging them to speed up. Staring longingly at a hot cake baking in the oven. Jumping into bed, lying down, and drifting off to sleep. Waiting can seem to last a lifetime.

And then, as soon as you wake up… the race begins – hurry up, let’s get a move on – we’re going to be late!

This book is all about a little girl learning to be patient. As she slowly opens her eyes to the wonder of nature, she uncovers that some things are really worth waiting for. Animals wake from hibernation, seeds bloom into flowers, trees turn into forests, and snails form beautiful, glittering trails.

A wonderful book for kids who always ask, ‘are we there yet?!’ Encourage them to go with the flow with this relatable story that has stylish and soothing illustrations on each page. An important message wrapped in an enjoyable and comforting story that kids will love to pick up off the bookshelf.
