The Story of Wobbly Willie Cranford
Wobbly Willie Kindness Collection Book 1
by Richard Quisenberry
Genre: Children's Picture Book
When it comes to starting the new year off right! The Wobbly Willie Kindness Book Collection just might be what you and your family need to help brighten the minds of our future on important issues that they may or may not understand.
Join Wobbly as he embarks on a journey that not only teaches us how to embrace our uniqueness but he reminds us of how to be kind to ourselves. When we address these reminders head-on, the power of a being kind brings us together. Wobbly Willie’s differences help identify and bring awareness to what it truly means to be kind to one another. This book will help redirect the behavior and mindset of children who are having difficulty understanding the value of Kindness, which results in a community that now is aware of the valuable life skills necessary in order to make a positive impact for generations to come.
The Story of Wobbly Willie Cranford is a little tale told in a simple rhyming style that children will enjoy. Wobbly Willie is a bit different. He's a short, stout fellow who walks in a unique rocking fashion. Wobbly Willie is happy and confident because he has always received love and acceptance from the people around him.
This is the simple message of this little book: that kindness can create a world where everyone can be happy being themselves. Nobody else in town looks like Willie, but it doesn't matter because they accept him just as he is.
Too often those on the receiving end of bullying are told that they just need to toughen up and not let it get to them. Fat kids in particular are often mercilessly bullied and then told by adults that the bullying is "for their own good" and they should use it to motivate themselves to lose weight. Internalizing this message leads to lives destroyed by eating disorders and self-loathing.
As someone who has lived with an eating disorder since I was twelve years old (I am now 55) and with self-loathing for most of my life, I dearly hope that the messages in this book, both the message of self-acceptance and the message of accepting others as they are, reach their target audience.
I wish that no other child would ever have to know the pain that I have known, but I fear that we have a long way to go. This book gives me hope that at least some people are trying to make positive changes. Nobody's appearance should ever be made the subject of ridicule.
I give The Story of Wobbly Willie Cranford five out of five stars and hope that its message makes a much-needed impact on the world.

Richard Quisenbury (Coach Quis) has achieved and is still in pursuit of every dream he has set his mind to, including graduating from college, becoming a principal, driving across the country, learning many hobbies, traveling out of the country, falling deeply in love, creating a beautiful family, and identifying his life purpose, to name but a few.
With over 40 years of experience in the educational industry, Coach Quis is just as passionate today, as he was on his first day, about developing tomorrow’s personal and professional leaders. As said by Coach Quis, “If you want a different result, you must be willing to first take a different action. With the near epidemic proportions of unhappy employees, the need for personal and professional integration has never been more imminent.”
Note that he didn’t say work/life balance; he believes such a thing is both impossible and undesirable for we spend a disproportionate amount of our time working. Instead, the goal is to integrate all aspects of life so we thrive at our careers & our personal lives equally as well, where we aren’t leaving a part of us behind as we spend our days at work wishing we were somewhere else… anywhere else; or trying to be home with our children while distracted by the things not getting done at work. Instead of balance, it’s the power of presence we seek.
