The first book in the series: Can't-Wait Willow!
Willow is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! The only problem is, that when left to her own devices, she can’t say “no” to some good things. On the way to the show, she is distracted by enticing treats and fun that she just can’t turn down. Willow arrives late and is sad to find that, not only has she has run out of time, but money, and she won’t be able to enjoy the pink cotton candy she’s been dreaming of. Willow is given valuable advice and a second chance and is ultimately taught the lesson that sometimes in life you have to say “no” to good things to end up with something great!

My Thoughts:My kids really liked "Can't Wait Willow." I would have to say that Mom enjoyed it just as much. What a wonderful story about teaching patience and responsibility to children.
I loved that the story used money as one of the examples in the story. My daughter always tries to save money for something. She always gets distracted and spends it on things that catch her eye. She just can’t say no!
The illustrations are adorable and fun. Just looking at the pictures makes you smile. The story also asks the reader to look for the star in the pages of the story. When Willow makes a good choice the star looks happy, but when she makes bad choices it looks sad. My kids loved searching for the star within the pages. We had fun talking about how the star looked and why.
This story is a treasure. It has found a permanent place on our book shelf. It has already been read a few times in our home.
This story would make a wonderful gift for friends and family.
