Straw is determined to always be the first to finish. It isn’t until after a bad case of brain freeze that a twisty straw talks to him about the satisfaction of enjoying the moment and Straw also learns to slow down.
I’m not sure how many picture books Rosenthal left for us to discover, but I have enjoyed her legacy immensely. I think she could have written a kitchen-full stories! The messaging is gentle and just a nice addition to the fun.
