Learning Patience

I want to be a FARMER by Carla Greene, illustrated by Irma and George Wilde (Childrens Press, 1959). The beginning sets out the mindset of the young protagonist:

Jim did not like
to make a garden.
Dig, dig, dig.
Work, work, work.
Wait, wait, wait.

Through the course of the story after a visit to Uncle Dick’s farm, the hero grows more appreciative. It helps that the narration is supported by good design from the front cover on.
