I Can Wait for the Bell to Ring! in The Bloomsbury Review

I Can Wait for the Bell to Ring!
by Jennifer Rapp

"We all know the agony of waiting. Whether it is waiting for the bus or waiting for jeans to dry, it always seems unbearable. Which is why i love Jennifer Rapp's homage to patience. Juxtaposing serious things to wait for, such as a sibling going off to college or the day braces come off, with more humorous ones, like cheese pizza cooling off or the dog pooping, the book is sympathetic and amusing at once. Rapp's illustrations are charmingly awkward, edgy, and hilarious. It all leads up to the one thing you can't wait for: the last day of school!" - Sophia Walker
