"A playful picture book about the concepts of time and patience. Phoebe's day is full of tomorrows: Mama says they can make pancakes, her teacher announces musicians will visit the class, and Phoebe will get ice cream after her haircut but none of it 'til tomorrow. Phoebe feels frustrated and impatient. Why can't these good things happen right now? Later in the day, Phoebe's grandmother bakes cookies and shares the secret ingredient to turn today into tomorrow: a good night's sleep. Phoebe decides she'll try it out. This is a sweet, practical story that offers a gentle lesson in the meaning of time. It also addresses the sense of unease and injustice kids may feel since they rarely control the way a day unfolds. Bold illustrations full of personality and diversity bring plucky, curious Phoebe's world to life on the page, making this an enjoyable early-learning read."-- Provided by publisher.
