Synopsis

I Want it Now! Helping Children Deal with Frustration and Disappointment by Chris Loftis

With his birthday fast approaching, Billy wants nothing more than the awesome bike he sees in a catalog. However, with his father having been laid off and his mother working two jobs, they simply cannot afford such an expensive gift. Upon hearing the word no, Billy flies into a rage. However, when he talks to his parents about it later, he learns to compromise, realizing spending time with his family means more to him than a bike. His parents also promise to save what they can to someday buy the bike. The touching story shows that some wishes and gimmies may not come true, yet the love that families share is the best gift of all.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
