Everybody's favorite Wombat is back, and he's desperate to cool down! Winston wants to play outside, but it's SO hot. Luckily, his mom comes up with a great idea: They can play in the sprinklers! Together they jump and laugh and play in the cool water under a hot summer sun, and then things get even better. There's a rainbow! Right there in the mist. But where did it come from?

 With the help of his mom, Winston learns why rainbows appear when there's mist in the sun, and how it's just like friendship and love-something miraculous that you can feel and enjoy, even when you can't catch it in your hand....

 

MY REVIEW
Winston Winks is an adorable children's book that teaches kids that practice makes perfect. Which, considering how impatient a lot of little kids are, is a good lesson for them to learn. 
Winston is a cute little wombat who just wants to be able to wink. His grandpa winks whenever he sees Winston, and he gives him cookies, so Winston wants to show his grandpa that he can wink too. But winking is very hard, and Winston is easily frustrated. His mom tells him to just keep trying, and she reminds him of all the other things he had to practice before he was able to do them with ease. Does Winston ever learn to wink? Read on and find out!
The story is cute and easy to read. Young readers will enjoy the simplicity of the story, and relate to Winston's struggles, while parents will approve of the lesson the story teaches. 
The illustrations are lovely, too.
I'm giving Winston Winks 5 stars!
