When Wanda finds out that it’s time for the annual Rubber Duck Days festival, she’s not too thrilled to hear that her family will participate, especially when they’re all wearing matching duck outfits! Whenever she’s presented with an opportunity to join in the festivities throughout the day, Wanda greets the news with a frown and says, “Whatever!” After a while, she begins to notice that her friends who have greeted the day enthusiastically are having a lot more fun than she is! Is an attitude adjustment in order?
Whatever Wanda! is a children’s book, but it teaches a lesson that we’re never too old to learn. I love the line in the book that says, “Sometimes you have to believe something WILL be great before it actually IS.” When you go into something expecting to have a lousy time, you probably will. But when you keep an open mind and are open to new experiences, you might be pleasantly surprised to find that it’s more fun than you expected! That’s what Wanda found out, and hopefully our children (and parents) will learn the same thing in reading Whatever Wanda!
