Lovely book. Really enjoyed it and I think it would be a good site word practice book because it repeats the same two words to tell the story.

It takes scarcely more than two words to tell this story about a mother and child rushing to catch a train. Anxiously checking her watch, the mother calls to the dawdling boy to "hurry!" But each time, the boy implores her to "wait" as his attention wanders to the fascinating sights they pass: a hungry duck, a friendly construction worker, a curious dog, and finally, a sight so beautiful that even the stressed-out mother can't help but stop and look in wonder.
