I absolutely love this book! It's a great teaching tool as well. It helps children realize that differences aren't always a bad thing and things that get made fun of can actually be happy things. If you have a child with a speech impediment or some other thing they struggle with, this book is for the both of you. (And perhaps their school class as well!)

This is a good read aloud book for children. They learn why is is not a good thing to make fun of someone because their different and why it is not good to be a 'know it all bully'. It teaches these lessons in a humorous way which will keep the child's attention.

The first time I read this book to my 5 year old daughter, I laughed like a little kid. It quickly became our favorite book. We enjoy many of Helen Lester's books. A must read for all kids AND adults!

I thought thatHooway for Wodney Wat was one of the best children books I've ever read. It showed someone overcomming an obstacle and gaining the exceptance of all of his classmates. It was a great book and I would recomend it to anyone.

This is a story about teasing and friendship. The other kids make fun of Rodney because he can't pronounce his r's. When Rodney helps get rid of the class bully, he becomes a hero because of his speech problems. Sort of a confusing message and not my favorite book on the subject.

Rodney Rat has a little problem; he can¿t pronounce his R¿s. He tries and tries but they always come out sounding like W¿s. The other rodents in his class tease him all of the time by calling him names or imitating the way he speaks. All of the terrible things that they do make Rodney feel horrible and embarrassed. One day, Camilla Capybera moves to town and gets placed in Rodney¿s class. Camilla is a big bully than any of the other students in Rodney¿s class. One day, an opportunity presents itself to Rodney Rat that would allow him to put Camilla Capybera in her place and she her that he and his fellow classmates can¿t be bullied by her anymore.

Wodney suffers from a common problem - he says w instead of r. That in and of itself should have been okay, but he's shown being teased mercilessly by the other students. No adult notices and steps in, even when he's unable to speak up in class and either totally ostracised or - slightly better - so shy from this treatment that he avoids the other rodents entirely and never even pokes his head out of his jacket.This is realistic enough - unfortunately - but that doesn't make it pleasant for me to read to my nieces.When a new bully comes and bullies the rest of the class, they don't learn the moral lesson "Bullying people isn't fun". Instead, Wodney turns her ignorance of his disability against her. The children laugh at her, and she runs off. "And they lived happily ever after and never teased him again." Of course, if he hadn't been able to use his Special Skill to help him then the other students would have continued to tease him, right?It's a very unsettling moral message, and not one I really like.

You know that while a work on the kidsite, I have never done storytime - that is with one exception. Years ago I filled in for the school librarian one day, and she left this for me to read 8 times that day. By the last group, my tongue was worn out from the tongue twisting text, and 1st graders were staring at me like they could not believe I was the person selected to read to them. BUT I still love this book! Wodney is a terrific.

This is a great book because it teaches children not to tease people. This is a book you should buy. I didn't buy this book yet but my teacher read it to me in class and I found it on my nook!

Hooway for Wodney Wat was marketed as an anti-bullying book but the book clearly bullies two individuals, swapping one for another, Message is not clear and is lost on the switch. I will not give this book to my grandchild or contribute it to the classroom as I had planned. Reading value is very early reading level. Story value -0-.

"Your loss I guess." She shrugged. Then she left... leaving behind a small dog tooth from her collar. ((Erin hunter result two or one))
