I received the “Whatever Wanda!” book from Laura Beth with FlyByPromotions to read and let you all know about. I didn’t really know what the book would be about, but figured just by the adorable picture on the cover, it would be a great read.
The story starts out with the good old morning alarm, and it made me kind of look twice, since the attitude that Wanda has seemed to really resemble me in the morning!! ha/ha It goes on to be a fun event, that she pretty much misses out on most of due to her negativity.
How many times do we look back and think of the “if I would have only” instances? In so many situations, we actually lose out on the whole thing due to a sour note. There are many times that I have to kind of “check” myself and make sure that living with an attitude that would be pleasing to God, my family and myself, in the end.
This book is great for all ages, perfect to be a family reader and allow parents to converse with their kids over this type of “whatever” attitude. It also adds some fun with “Mr. Star” hiding in the pages, where you have to find him and see how he’s feeling. All in all, a great read, a great lesson and absolutely beautiful artwork on every page. I definitely recommend this book to everyone!

I am more of the “glass is full” kind of person, but my son and other family members are opposite. It is a challenge to break that cycle, but I just try to remind them of all the happy things.
LOL, this sounds like such a cute book. It’s soooooo perfect for my son right now. 🙂
