~Giveaway~ Whatever Wanda! Shine Bright Kids

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

What a fun book, Whatever Wanda! I just loved the illustrations. My two year old Nikolas jumped as soon as he saw all the ducks on the cover. He has a duck obsession since we moved to Missouri. He just loved all the pictures in it. The whole book is about a Duck Race, you can imagine his delight!

My favorite part is the star that follows Wanda around and shows when her attitude is good or bad. It's such a fun addition to the story. This is a great teaching story about attitude. With the right attitude you will make your day and life great, and you'll be happy. With the wrong attitude you will be miserable and have a bad day. This story teaches your kids all about how just a slight change in attitude can make you and your day the best it can be. I have 8 kids and a few with rotten attitudes as they enter the teen years. So this book hit a chord with me. Life is all about what you make it, and this book encourages you to make it Great!

~About the Book~
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!”
