Dad offers to his daughter a marshmallow and a choice:
Enjoy the treat now — or — wait 15 minutes for “something even better.” Will she be able to wait? What could be better than a marshmallow?
You don’t have to wait to find out.
Read the book and fall in love with the adorable illustrations by amazing talent, Sasha Roberson.
Story inspired by the 1960s Stanford Marshmallow Experiment.
Parent Note: The often-difficult concept of telling analog time is made simple in this story, as is the equally important lesson of learning how to wait for a reward.
