Time for the Fair by Mary Train

Grace loves the fair. She loves it so much, she keeps asking her mother if it is time for the fair again. But a whole year must pass before the fair returns. This is a simple story about how a child anxiously passes the time from one season to the next. The text descriptions are wonderfully evocative, and the story's rhythmic, seasonal flow and soft watercolor illustrations make it a great bedtime story.
