Janice Croze, 5 Minutes for Mom co-founder, shares a look into the Wenda the Wacky Wiggler Interactive Storybook and a chance to win a $75 Visa Gift Card. This post is sponsored, but all opinions remain those of the writer.

Wenda the Wacky Wiggler is a fun and interactive storybook app that encourages children that it’s okay to just be themselves.

Do you have a “wiggler” at home?

Perhaps you are a wiggler too.

I have a couple of wigglers here. Both of my kids, and I as well, struggle are blessed with ADHD.

My youngest, Olivia, actually can’t physically NOT wiggle — Olivia has Stereotypical Movement Disorder, also called Complex Motor Stereotypy.

When Olivia is sitting or standing still, listening to instructions, bored, etc., her body involuntarily begins her repetitive movements where she clenches her arm, fist, and jaw in a “tic” like movement. (You can read more about our journey over the years with Olivia’s stereotypies in this post, “Diagnosis Stereotypy.”)

While it isn’t always easy for Olivia to deal with her movement disorder, and having people or kids make comments or stare is obviously upsetting, Olivia is learning to take it in stride.

Olivia is an imaginative, creative, fabulous child — with so much passion for life, she just can’t hold it all in…

Meet Wenda

Wenda, the heroine of her own Interactive Storybook, Wenda the Wacky Wiggler, is in a similar situation as my Olivia.

Wenda is a girl who is constantly on the move. She wiggles and moves all the time – even at night when she’s asleep, much to the consternation of the adults around her.

High spirited, active children, like Wenda and Olivia, who march to the beat of a different drummer can identify with Wenda as they learn that their uniqueness is their gift to the world and not to listen to others who might put them down for being different. 

My Olivia really enjoyed experiencing this interactive story. We don’t have an iPad, so we downloaded it on my iPhone. There are three modes for the storybook app — Read to Me, Read Myself, and AutoPlay.

Livvie liked listening to the narration by writer Christopher Aslan and the wonderful illustrations, but she also got me to read it to her again myself.

This sweet story is definitely one that parents and children can enjoy together. Wenda the Wacky Wiggler’s enthusiasm for life is infectious and delightful.

The storybook app is narrated by award winning writer Christopher Aslan and contains beautiful illustrations as well as the following features:

  • Touch and tap animation surprises
  • Original music score
  • Multiple reading modes allow your child to have the story read to them or to read it on their own
  • No in-app purchases or ads
  • Plays on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

You can download Wenda the Wacky Wiggler interactive storybook on iTunes.

    I would spend on my son and daughter. For my son, a new toy and my daughter, some new shoes for school.

  2. Rebecca Parsons says

    I would love to get this on my ipad for my granddaughter. I would also get a few other books and games for her.

  3. says

    I would probably put this towards some groceries for the house. Once the fall weather comes, it seems we start baking more (and sharing more with our friends and neighbors).

    I have 3 daughters(twins 34 and 31yrs old) and 5 grandkids(10, 8, 7, 5, and 3 yrs. old) and they’re all in and out everyday….and they’re ALL constantly on the go!!!….MY Dad use to say ‘idle hands, ildle minds’ so keep them busy and they’ll stay out of trouble.

  5. says

    I have 4 kids, 7, 4, and twin 2 year olds. None of them are particularly wiggly… they can sit still. But they are active children for sure, not wanting to sit still if they don’t have to!

  6. Christina says

    I have two boys, five and nine, and a seven year old girl. They aren’t so much wigglers any more, but they were when they were younger.

  7. julie moore says

    Only one and she was a world class wiggler. Rocking her to sleep, she may end up completely upside down by the time she fell asleep

  8. Kerrie Mayans says

    I have four kids, ages 15,12,8, and 5. My eight year old used to be a wiggler and now is a chewer. He can now sit still as long as he is chewing on something. Sometimes it is his clothes, his pens and pencils at school or other toys and things. Right now he is obsessed with chewing on rubber pencil grips. I wish he would go back to wiggling.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  10. Jill Myrick says

    We have seven children ages 18 months, 3yrs, 6yrs, 8yrs, 11yrs, 17yrs and 18yrs. Of the seven 2 have been wigglers.
