Love it! Such a great message for todays children who are growing up in a world very different from my parents time when someone got a job out of school and stayed there for their entire career. Todays children will grow up and do many different jobs, wear many hats, and enjoy many interests, cultures, and places to live. Only problem is too many adults who are raising them do not understand this. I know quite a few adults who would benefit from reading this book. This book will help empower, the children who read it, to stand up to the adults who try to limit their imagination of who they can be. Brava.

Now I know you are rolling your eyes and saying - Oh Splendid! Another celebrity thinks they can write a children's book!! But let me just be the first to say, WELL DONE, FRAN DRESCHER aka "The Nanny"! Well done. Being Wendy is so creative with an AWESOME message of following your dreams and not letting yourself be influenced or limited by what others think you should be....you are special, unique, and different. Love! I'm a school counselor and always on the hunt for books with a message like this one.

The kids were HOOKED and intrigued as to where this story was going. But the best part was getting to help the students figure out how the message applies to their own lives. Books are such magic. Get creative and use some paper bags as a fun visual. I drew a question mark on a paper bag, cut out arm holes, and had a student wear it. Each student then got a brown piece of paper with directions to list their interests and strengths.

Favorite part of book - when Wendy tries to hug her dad - but he wears a box too so it gets in the way. This sparked such great conversation about acceptance.

I LOVE Fran Drescher and have read her other books, so I thought I would get this book for my daughter. It is a very cute book about not always fitting in and being just like everyone else and that it is okay to be a little different and be yourself. I love the old style graphics in this book...reminds me of when I was a little girl. My daughter who is 9 is also a fan of "The Nanny" and loves this book especially because it is written by Fran. It has some of Fran's sense of humor in this book as far as the names of the people. Very cute story, very cute graphics.

Loved the idea of thinking outside of the box. Truly inspiring for the young generation. Motivating story of how not to be a "label". Truly wonderful reading for today's children. With so many choices of who and what to be, the story of being Wendy lets children know it's ok to grow and learn who you want to be, and that you do not have to be cookie cutter shaped. I have ordered it for my niece. She is 4 years old and is so very like Wendy! I know she is going to love it.
