Whatever Wanda! Book By Christy Ziglar Review + Giveaway 4/14 US/CAN


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!”

About the author:
Christy Ziglar, financial planner, mother of twins, and niece of legendary motivator and the world’s original optimist, Zig Ziglar, is bringing the same timeless wisdom and ageless advice to an entirely new, younger audience through her Shine Bright Kids picture book series. Christy, her husband, and their twins live in Atlanta, Georgia.

About the illustrator:
Paige Billin-Frye lives with her husband in Washington, D.C., where she gardens and grows food in her city yard. She has illustrated numerous children’s books and works in a studio over a neighborhood hardware store. Coincidentally, Paige has amassed a collection of rubber duckies of all sizes across the years.


My daughters sometimes act up when they don't like something. They would pout and stomp their feet and I would immediately talk to them and most times, a time out. So when I received the Whatever Wanda! Book, I looked forward to showing it to them.

My daughters, who are 4 and 6, were so excited as soon as they saw the Whatever Wanda! Book.I let my 6 year old daughter read it to me and her sister and she read it with no problems. The story was simple to understand and I love the moral at the end of the story.
My 4 year old daughter loved the illustrations in the Whatever Wanda! Book because they're so colorful and nice. I like how the book taught my daughters how to be stay positive, happy and thankful in the things that they do.

After my 6 year old daughter finished reading the book to me and her sister, I asked them what they learned about the book. My 6 year old daughter told me that she shouldn't act up and should find something fun in everything that she does. My 4 year old daughter told me not to say "Whatever" all the time.

I like the Whatever Wanda! Book and I love how the author, Christy Ziglar, made the book interesting and a fun read.
