When Will Sarah Come?
- 2000 Charlotte Zolotow Award Highly Commended Title
What do you do when your big sister and you have to stay at home?
Sarah's little brother, Jonathan, plays and reads and builds and waits and waits and waits for Sarah.
Did you hear that?
Is Sarah coming now? Bang-Whirr-Whirr-Crunch. Clip-Clip-Trrrr-Crcrick. Flip-Flap-Plop. What wonderful noises the garbage truck and the tree trimmers and the mail carrier make! But what Jonathan really wants to hear is the telltale Vrrom-Chug-Chug of the big yellow bus that will bring his best playmate, big sister Sarah, home from school. Energized collaborators Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard and Nina Crews get right to the heart of a young child's concerns in this sunny, photographic ode to anticipation, patience, and yes-noise!
