Wait and See

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Jo has saved up her pocket money and is tempted to spend it all at the local shops, but instead, decides to wait and see. Sure enough, her mother forgets her money at the post office and Jo steps in to help.

On the way home, Jo’s mum tells all the shopkeepers about Jo’s kind act and they reward her with all the exciting food she wanted to spend her money on in the first place.

Just as well – as we see in Eileen Browne’s warm illustrations, Jo’s dad has been cooking dinner, but something has gone wrong… A lovely story about the good things that happen if you help others.
