It's spring, and Miyuki rushes Grandfather outside early in the morning so they can see all the sights! But one little flower bud hasn't opened, and Miyuki is sure that it needs water. Grandfather urges her, "Patience, Miyuki" — but patience is not a virtue easily won. As Miyuki runs around looking for water, other creatures she meets also urge patience, but she just can't wait... until she exhausts herself and falls asleep at the end of a long day. And the next morning, Grandfather shows her something special which reminds her that Nature grows on its own timeline.
The author-illustrator pair behind the critically acclaimed Time for Bed, Miyuki return for another magically illustrated story about family, love, and the wisdom of nature.
