STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW, School Library Journal "A lovely and intimate study of a child's growing sense of independence, capability, and curiosity." - Publishers Weekly "Sakai is a wizard with the medium, capturing the child's emotions with simple lines and bringing the animals fully to life... Parents and toddlers will see themselves in these pages and delight in Sakai's ability to bring them to life. A quiet gem." - School Library Journal "Parents and their little ones will snuggle together to read this joyous evocation of the newness and wonder of the world over and over again ... Tender and wistful and glorious." -- STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews "This is a tender and lovely work which perfectly illustrates a child's curiosity and early interaction with the natural world." -- The Butler County Public Library "The text is very simple with the title repeated throughout and then one additional sentence added for each creature. The illustrations shine. They are wonderfully organic with textures while the colors remain subtle and natural." -- Waking Brain Cells "Wait! Wait! is a nostalgic gift for us old folks, and quite the exciting adventure for the young 'uns. Artist Komoko Sakai's whimsical panels are the perfect companion to author Hatsue Nakawaki's invitingly simple, repetitive prose, with just the right rhythm to keep the youngest readers both engaged and entertained." -- The Smithsonian Book Dragon "In a story mirroring the staccato rhythms of a toddler, we meet a young child dressed in overalls, ever-curious about the natural world ... This is a gentle and perfectly paced story for very young children," -- Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast
