Whatever Wanda! {Review and Giveaway}


Whatever Wanda! is such a cute book! It is also such a typical part of growing up, in my opinion..

Wanda is in serious need of an attitude adjustment! She doesn’t want to accompany her family to the Rubber Duck Days Festival, and once there, she won’t participate in any of the events or join in with her friends. Soon Wanda receives some helpful advice and learns that:

“Sometimes you have to believe something will be great before it actually is. Being positive is a choice that makes everything better, not to mention, a whole lot more fun!”

I can recall growing up and not particularly wanting to do something and then realizing too late that it would have been a lot of fun. It’s a crummy situation! I try and have my kids do new things, but they too have to realize it for themselves if they choose not to do it and then miss out on the fun.

This is a short book at just 32 pages, but the story really gets through! The illustrations are wonderful and very colorful!! And of course I love all of the ducks! šŸ˜‰

The book is the third title in the Shine Bright Kids series and if you read them, the same kids are mentioned throughout each book. TheĀ Shine Bright KidsĀ series provides children and their families with the tools to teach theĀ importance of making goodĀ choices. The series explores such topics as:Ā usingĀ good judgment, taking responsibility, having a positive attitude, andĀ demonstrating perseverance.

The author is Christy Ziglar. She is a financial planner, mother of twins, and niece of legendary motivator and the world’s original optimist, Zig Ziglar, and is bringing the same timeless wisdom and ageless advice to an entirely new, younger audience through her Shine Bright Kids picture book series. Christy, her husband, and their twins live in Atlanta, Georgia.

I found it interesting that the illustrator for the book, Paige Billin-Frye has a rubber duck collection. šŸ™‚

Anyway, if you have younger kiddos and are interested in this book, you can enter to win your own copy down below!!
