Does your child ever have a bad attitude? Mine definitely struggle with this issue and as parents, my husband and I are always trying to find ways to help them make an attitude adjustment. In "Whatever Wanda!", Wanda is in need of a serious 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 read this with my six year old son and at first he was hesitant to read it with me. It was a "girl story." But when we got started, he was drawn in. Wanda is a dealing with issues that we've dealt with: she doesn't want to wear the outfit her mom picked out, she doesn't want to go on the family outing, she doesn't want to play with her friends, etc. These are all things my son could relate to. This book has such a great message about choosing to have a good attitude even when you don't want to. (I think I needed that message today, too! : )). My son ended up enjoying the book, as he has the previous two children's books by Christy Ziglar. I would definitely recommend it!
