"There's Nothing Wrong With Claudia" by Brenda Kearns is a wonderful and magic book for children that I would highly recommend.
In the story Claudia is unhappy with her special gift, talent or curse to be able to float, for which no cure can be found.
Only her grandfather keeps assuring everyone: There is nothing wrong with Claudia.
The book is a wonderful plea for acceptance of all of one's qualities. What may appear as a weakness could turn out to be a strength and a blessing.
The symbolism and th

There's Nothing Wrong With Claudia is an endearing children's book with an little heroine that cannot help being different from the rest of the kids, and hates it. Flailing her frail little arms and legs she is the only one to find herself floating every time a gust of wind penetrates the place, and without fail, it puts her in trouble:

"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

A great children's story that teaches a valuable lesson, that it's okay to be different. Through the colorful illustrations and the adorable dialogue, this book is really cute and great to read with children.

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

I read this and also had my 12 year old daughter read it and will combine our thoughts on this book.

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

I choose to give this book"There's Nothing Wrong With Claudia,"!five stars for such a sweet, short funny story
about how Claudia always seemed to lifted up into the air and float around when she was outside on windy
days, even books and cod liver oil,etc. did not seem to stop here from floating around and bumping into people
and things then ,see? And how this happened to help her save the day on one very special occasion. I
recommend this lovely book for children or anyone who would like to read

A charming little book with funny pictures, a joy to read to your children and with your children.

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 revie

This is a very cute story about a young girl who is "different". She floats in the breeze. Everyone complains and she feels insecure. Only her Grandfather offers her any support. When a parrot escapes from the magician's cage, Claudia is the only one who can help.
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.

Given a copy for an honest review.

The author wrote a charming story about a girl who is unlike others.
Claudia can float. When a breeze is blowing Claudia floats.
The story is charming. The moral is clear - not being like others is not something to fear.
Loved this.
