Whatever Wanda! is a sweet 29 page book geared for elementary aged children. It tells the story of a little girl named Wanda that needs an attitude adjustment, and quick!
Her town is hosting their annual Rubber Duck Days festival and it seems everyone is excited but Wanda. No matter what anyone says to her, her response is "whatever." Through a series of events, Wanda learns that her attitude can not only affect those around her, but also determine how much fun she has as well.
Luckily for her, she is challenged by a friendly duck, named Waddles, to change her attitude and her day, resulting in much more fun. It is a good lesson for children who tend to be hard-to-please as well as a gentle reminder to us all that we need to choose to have good attitudes.
"Being positive is a choice that makes everything better - not to mention, a whole lot more fun!"
My son, age 7, really enjoyed this book (despite the main character being a girl) and loves looking for the star on each page. He even said about two pages into the book, "She shouldn't say 'whatever' to everyone. That's not nice" Yay us! We love the eye catching colors used and the adorable pictures. They bring each page to life and hold a child's attention easily.
This is a great book for character building in your home, but would also be perfect for churches and childcare situations as well. It would make a perfect gift for an elementary-aged child. My second grader is able to read this book independently, making it a common choice for his quiet reading time.
