She creates a ruckus in the classroom when she lets everyone know the Unicorn Yak is made with cotton candy and topped with sprinkles. When her mom is late picking her up, Cora June complains about having to wait, and then she freaks out because the line at the Slushy Shack is super long. When she finally gets to the counter, Cora June gets crushing news: The Unicorn Yak slushies are sold out.
If she wants one, she has to come back another day!
Will Cora June find the strength to stay calm and remain patient? Can Mom help Cora June develop her patience muscle and convince her that good things really DO come to those who wait?
