    Thank you Netgalley for the eARC. Wednesday Wilson wants to be an entrepreneur. Her best friend Charlie and little brother are with her in all of her future plans. She found her first client now just she has to make something. But business is not that simple. I love the concept and story. Illustrations were so cute. I really enjoyed it.

My, the troubles she gets into! 😂😂😂 Her go-get attitude make her a champion for great female characters in children's fiction. Without revealing any huge spoiler, I can just say that I adored her thoughts on stereotypes. And her lists on every single topic! I can certainly identify with someone who creates lists like that! This book will work wonderfully for all little children as it has a very realistic approach towards storytelling. The illustrations are adorable, but even if there were no illustrations, the book would have clicked with me. A wonderful light read, recommended for all children of age 5+. Thank you NetGalley and Kids Can Press for this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I had a nice time reading this book. ************************************* Join me on the Facebook group, Readers Forever! , for more reviews, book-related discussions and fun.

    Wednesday Wilson is my kind of kid! She has wild ideas, gets her friends to go along with them and gets in round of trouble along the way. She is inventive and creative and fun. I know lots of kids that will immediately be connected to Wednesday. I am so glad this is just the first installment of an early reader chapter series! The book was ready to read and highly entertaining. Once we started, we had to know how it ended!

    I was given access to a digital early release copy of this book. I’m sorry to say that I think it just fell a little flat. This book refers to a group of girls as mean girls but I failed to see enough evidence of what makes their characters so mean. There was not enough background given about these girls that would make them so horrible to be called mean girls at school. While do think Wednesday as a character is a delight and full of personality this book lacks depth. I would really only recomm I was given access to a digital early release copy of this book.

This would be a simple book for a student or child who maybe needs practice with plot and events. The book is simplistic enough to follow. If there plans on being other books in this series where the characters can develop themselves a little more than I would be interested in reading a follow up to compare. I will say if you are looking for an early chapter book for a very young reader this would give them the confidence so they feel as though they can read chapter books later on in progress towards more depth and longer books.

    Absolutely fantastic! Wednesday Wilson is the kind of middle-grade book I wish I had a middle grader! I love how very matter-of-fact she is, and how she just knows her next big business break is right around the corner. She loves making lists (so do I!), tolerates her brother, Mister, more than she cares to admit, and is glued to the hip of her BFF Charlie.

Wednesday Wilson is the kind of middle-grade book I wish I had a middle grader! I love how very matter-of-fact she is, and how she just knows her next big business break is right around the corner. She loves making lists (so do I!), tolerates her brother, Mister, more than she cares to admit, and is glued to the hip of her BFF Charlie. Bree Galbraith effortlessly blends several topics into the story, like LGBTQIA representation with Wednesday's two Mums (Mom and Mum), and race as Wednesday is biracial - Black and White (as are her Mums). Both topics are handled so well. As a non-issue, as it should be. And we even touch on the topic of bullying with the four Em's at school. Three Emma's and an Emmett. Who are the bain of Wednesday's and Charlie's existence. Wednesday gets herself into a pickle when she accidentally hits one of the Emma's in the face with kale. And she and Charlie need to come up with an invention quick! This was the part that I kinda cringed at, cause they used library books and cut out the middle. AHHHH!!! At the end of the day, in the principal's office with her two Mum's, Wednesday realizes her mistakes and holds herself accountable and does the right thing. Galbraith also brings in such intelligence to a third-grader, which is amazing to see. Constantly learning a large vocabulary through her Mums, and using them in her lists and notation entries where she can. Morgan Goble brings in the best sketches and draws of all the characters and scenes of their day and think tank process. It helped to bring the characters to life. Being an eARC, I did not have colour illustrations, however, if the cover tells that tale, the pops of colour amongst the neutrals are spot-on. Thank you to Kids Can Press, Hachette Book Group and Edelweiss for providing me with this opportunity to read and review Wednesday Wilson Gets Down to Business. I look forward to sequels in the series.

So she brainstorms with her best friend Charlie and her little brother Mister to figure out what her first business should be. But before Wednesday can do that, she has to deal with The Kale Incident, which means dealing with the Emmas.

She wants to be an entrepreneur, and she wants to start now. So she brainstorms with her best friend Charlie and her little brother Mister to figure out what her first business should be. But before Wednesday can do that, she has to deal with The Kale Incident, which means dealing with the Emmas. The Emmas (there are 4 of them, but technically one is Emmet) are the mean girls in Wednesday’s class, and because of The Kale Incident, they’re blackmailing Wednesday to get what they want. And what they want is the new invention Wednesday is going to sell with her new business: a Secret Keeper. But Wednesday came up with that on the spur of the moment. Will she and Charlie be able to come up with something to be a Secret Keeper? And will it be enough to keep the Emmas happy, or will Wednesday end up getting in trouble anyway? Wednesday Wilson Gets Down to Business is a fun early chapter book for kids 8-10. It weaves lessons about business into a sweet story of a girl trying to maneuver her ambitions and going to school and dealing with bullies. Author Bree Galbraith has created this character with a strong sense of who she is and what she wants. And illustrator Morgan Goble brings her to life with adorable drawings filled with life and energy. I really liked Wednesday Wilson Gets Down to Business. I love that she has two supportive moms (technically a mom and a mum) and that she isn’t afraid to chase after her dreams. She is helpful, focused, driven, and she can think on her feet. I think she’ll be a good role model for young girls who also have a lot of ideas about who they are and where they want to go. It’s a short book, but it’s packed with action and personality and ideas and fun. Egalleys for Wednesday Wilson Gets Down to Business were provided by Kids Can Press through NetGalley, with many thanks.

Wednesday wants to be an entrepreneur and with the help of her friend Charlie and her brother, she tries to come up with an idea for a business to make money. Unfortunately, Wednesday and Charlie are bullied by the Emmas and Ruby, who used to be their friend. They do come up with an idea that caused some issues, but I loved the way Bree Gailbraith had this problem solved. I really liked Wednesday. She tried to ignore the bullies and come up with ideas to stay out of their way, but that hasn't worked so far. She is a great role model for girls as she wants to be an inventor or business person, and is willing to work hard and try things to get there. She is not afraid to fail, which is something people need to learn, you can learn from these things and move forward. There is some humor in this story that helps to keep it light. Wednesday's parents are wonderful. They don't let her get away with things, but they use natural consequences and spend time talking with her and explaining their reasoning, which is perfect. The illustrations by Morgan Goble are black and white drawings and add much to the story. They also provide great picture clues for early readers. I recommend this story and will look for me. I am looking forward to my granddaughter getting older so we can read this together. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

    I was horrified when the main character decided on an invention and then acted on it. I don't want to be a spoiler so I won't say what that was. But I will say that she talked about budget troubles at the school and then did this?!? She's not a good kid. (Besides her invention and how she made them, her talking back to the principal as she gets in trouble is just wrong.) I also thought the beginning of introducing the characters and plot took too long.

(Besides her invention and how she made them, her talking back to the principal as she gets in trouble is just wrong.) I also thought the beginning of introducing the characters and plot took too long. The author has to define too many difficult words. Wednesday is in the third grade but uses adult vocabulary (entrepreneur, perseverance, vice president of operations, drooping, telepathy, prototype, etc). I don't appreciate the books in which the main character is 8 and mature. This isn't my first experience with that. She talks and acts so maturely and then says she puts money in her piggy bank's butt--which seems to be an attempt at sounding like Junie B. It has a very limited audience because it is styled for early chapter readers, but has such difficult vocabulary that most early chapter readers would struggle to understand a large part of the book.

As I said before, this book was adorable, modern and insightful while normalizing diversity and values representation, which Wednesday event points out herself.

The only problem? Wednesday didn't think things through! What will her Moms (yes, she has two) think when they find out? How much trouble is she really in? One of my favorite parts in this book is how the author uses the main character to explain entrepreneurial vocabulary. Wedensday speaks directly to the reader to tell her story, and explain some complicated words into kid friendly language. With a diverse cast of characters, girls in the lead rolls, and STEM skills and entrepreneurial spirit at the forefront, this book is a must have for any STEM classroom!

Wednesday is quite the character wanting to become an entrepreneur bursting with ideas for her future businesses. Convinced she has an idea that will give her a start and hopefully solve her problem with her nemesis, Emma, she convinces Charlie and Mister to help her. The only problem is that her idea and plan land her in more trouble. Readers will identify with the characters, in particular, Wednesday, with her matter-of-fact personality knowing what she wants in her future. Readers will learn the vocabulary related to business and marketing logically and engagingly, just like Wednesday. The illustrations (although I only had black and white) are engaging and will be appealing to readers of this age group. Another welcome series that librarians and teachers are always looking to add for their students and readers.

    Wednesday Wilson is so amazing that I read her first book in one sitting. I love her distinct voice, with the footnotes and extra vocabulary. I love how her teacher is amused by every wrong step (because as a teacher, I would have adored a student like Wednesday), and I especially love that Mister -- her younger brother by 3 years -- is the voice of reason and an equal member in their friend group. I hope we get a whole bushel full of these adorable books. (I received this book free from NetGalle Wednesday Wilson is so amazing that I read her first book in one sitting.

    3.5 stars for this book about Wednesday Wilson, a girl with plenty of ambition and ideas, but more enthusiasm than sense. Librarians looking to diversify their collection will find plenty of representation in this book, always a plus (and listed as part of Wednesday's list of The Most Important Things About Me). The story starts slowly, but picks up steam after a few chapters: mean popular kids, trying to get out of getting in trouble at school, successful business idea (unfortunate execution). 3.5 stars for this book about Wednesday Wilson, a girl with plenty of ambition and ideas, but more enthusiasm than sense.

    I received an eARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Wednesday Wilson's story is something that I wish I'd seen growing up as a mixed race child. She is smart, funny, imaginative and loyal. I adored this book for showing young children of colour that they can be so much more than what they're expected to be. Introducing them to the idea of being a business owner and coming up with new innovations. Bonus points for the LGBTQIA+ representation as well.

Why isn't there a series about a kid entrepreneur for older middle grade readers, since they can actually get casual jobs?

    I was supplied a complimentary copy through Goodreads. I have mixed feelings regarding this book: it encourages inclusive thinking and diversity, yet I did not feel comfortable gifting it to my nieces or nephews. At times I felt it tried too hard to reflect diversity. As well, since I believe that "race" is an invalid concept, a character who refers to herself as "mixed race" is reinforcing of racist beliefs, in my opinion. The storyline itself was enjoyable, though. I was supplied a complimentary copy through Goodreads.

    Wednesday Wilson is the kind to hang out with. She is wild, she has amazing ideas, and she doesn't wait for the world to happen. She takes things in her own hands! AND she has a lovely family and friends. Besides, the illustrations are FANTASTIC! They alone were enough to keep me smiling all the while I was reading.

    Thanks to NetGalley i read this good book before premier It's an annoying book at times, but why, I liked it. This book tells us about a girl's project, an entrepreneurial project. But it does something that is not allowed, and logically that is not done. In the end I came to understand the plot of the book well, that's why I rate it well, it could says. 3.5 Thanks to NetGalley i read this good book before premier It's an annoying book at times, but why, I liked it.

    I just finished reading Wednesday Wilson Gets down to Business by Bree Galbraith illustrated by Morgan Goble. I enjoyed reading this children’s book. I liked the writing style. I found it fun! I will get my nieces to read it as 9 and 11 I feel like they could do a better review so I will be back with their comments.

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Wednesday Wilson is a entrepreneur child who is inventive and resilient. Bree Galbraith provides readers with a fresh new book full of lively dialogue and diverse characters. This would be a great addition of a classroom library.

    Wednesday Wilson Gets Down to Business by @breegalbraith and @realactualmorg gets ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. A cute story about Wednesday, her brother and her friend who work together to make a business. A great book for a future entrepreneurs or a child who is learning about consequences. The highlight of this book is definitely the artwork by Morgan Goble. 😍 I would recommend this book for Grade 3 and up. #netgalley #netgalleyreads #bowkerbooks
