Kein Problem wenn's länger dauert

While You’re Waiting – Stories to Make the Time Speed by

Are we there yet? Waiting – everyone has to do it, and everyone hates it!

Waiting doesn’t always have to be boring. However, children spend a lot of time doing it. At the dentist, at the bus stop, on long car journeys, before eagerly anticipated visitors arrive. Often quiet, sometimes loud, sometimes frolicking and jumping around, then as quiet as a mouse again. This book will make time fly by. Whether you’re out and about or at home, its handy size makes it ideal to carry around with you. Practical games at the end of each story help to fill the time whenever you have to wait. A must-have for anyone who has to spend time waiting with children.

Practical handbag format with game-ideas (for the road)
