Can't Wait Willow review and give-away!!

My daughter and I recently read Can't Wait Williow by Christy Ziglar. Awesome book with a few great lessons we all can learn from. This book is helpful for my daughter to see that we need to be patient, that not all good things are good things and that there is something better for us if we make the right choice and wait. It also teaches about feelings and patience, which is sometimes one of my weaknesses. The book is beautifully illustrated and an enjoyable book to sit down and read over and over again.
Quotes from the book, that I love:
"Sometimes you need to say no. It can be better to wait. Save yes for the super amazing, and end up with the truly great!" Christy Ziglar
"Sometimes you've got to say 'no' to the good, so you can say 'yes' to the best." Zig Ziglar

I have the opportunity to give away a free copy of this book to one person, all you have to do is leave me a comment? I will randomly draw a name from the comments on Monday, October 28, 2013

The first book in the series:  Can't-Wait Willow!
Willow is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! The only problem is, that when left to her own devices, she can’t say “no” to some good things. On the way to the show, she is distracted by enticing treats and fun that she just can’t turn down. Willow arrives late and is sad to find that, not only has she has run out of time, but money, and she won’t be able to enjoy the pink cotton candy she’s been dreaming of.
