This is a story about a little girl named Claudia, who has a slight...floating issue. Everyone gets mad at Claudia and her floating, expect her Grandpa, who sees her for who she is and doesn't see anything wrong with the way she is. Claudia wants to be just like the other kids until one day a major disaster happens at school. Claudia, the clever and sweet girl, swoops or should I say floats, and saves the day, proving sometimes it great to be different!
A very cute story that teaches children that it's okay to be different. And that sometimes, it's our differences that define who we are. We are all the same, even a little girl who has a tenancy to float. I recommend this book to people who have children or likes books that teach a valuable lesson.
I enjoyed reading it. It was short but very well done with a great plot and characters,etc. in it.
I t told about how when she was out in the wind it would make her float into the sky,etc. and
how this came out to be very helpful in the end. I recommend this book for young and old
who enjoys a story that's funny and short and also has a parrot involved in this story as
well for those who enjoy animal stories with kids also involved in it! I received this book
free in exchange for this free book to me, Thanks so very much Brenda for allowing me
to bavle to do this for the future readers , you and for myself as well. I had a blue fronted
Amazon Parrot once so this was a lot of fun to read about other parrots too, They can
be so much fun and yet at times a lot of work,yes? Great work Brenda! By Angela
"Every time Claudia let go of her desk, she drifted across the room and smacked her head on the doorframe. Her teacher told the principal. The principal told her parents. Everyone was mad at her..."
The only one to support Claudia, perhaps even to understand that she has a special gift, is her Grandpa. Again and again he defends her after each episode of her getting in trouble. It becomes a chant, the motto of the story and in the end, her vindication: "There's nothing wrong with Claudia," he says, always adding a little excuse in her defense. "And besides, they could have shut the windows."
I highly recommend this book, not only because I see her floating as symbolic of the ability to dream and imagine, but also because of the endearing drawings, which fit so well with the story.

There's nothing wrong with Claudia was an adorable tale of a little girl who is quite different. Everyone sees Claudia as different, but in a bad way, until she shows them all just how good it is to be different. Although you are unlikely to come across little girls who float in the wind, There's Nothing Wrong with Claudia shows children that no matter how they are different, it's okay to be that way. My daughter really loved that Claudia had her Grandpa who believed in her and saw her as 'normal' no matter how many times someone thought there was something wrong with her. One thing my daughter also noted, was there were a few words she felt small children would likely not understand (coaxing, billowing) and wanted to see easier words. We both loved the illustrations and whimsical nature of them.
The girl is a good example that, even though you are not exactly the same as the others, this doesn't have to be a reason to think something would be wrong with you. Every way we are special from the others make us able to help others in a very own way, like in this book.
Certainly a book to recommend to families with small children!
ps. I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review, this has in no way influenced the outcome of the review.
I was gifted this book for an honest review
This is a fun little book with very colorful pictures and a powerful message. Sometimes people are different for a reason. This book confronts how uncomfortable a child is with her differences. The grandmother seemed to be the only one trying not to fix her. She finds a use for her talents and everyone finally sees why she is different.
I think this is a great book for children to show them that they need to respect differences in people. We can't all be the same.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Sometimes being different is exactly what is needed!
It is a great story which young children will enjoy. The illustrations are gorgeous and add immensely to the story.
