What I loved: I really appreciated this strategy for "getting the wiggles out" that the book illustrates and describes so well. I loved that Winston's fun personality shines through the story. I also loved that Winston is so excited about science and learning new things. This excitement is contagious, and endears the reader to Winston quickly. The length of the book is great elementary school aged readers, and it's very easy to read aloud with a clear font.
What left me wanting more: As a small thing, even though Winston addresses both his parents, only his mother replies and participates in the nighttime rituals. I really love to see dads also involved, but Winston's dad only comes in for the very end. It's a very small thing though, and I loved the connection between Winston and his mother regardless.
Final Verdict: WINSTON WIGGLES is a cute picture book about the importance of and strategies for calming down before bedtime.
