My second rhymed children’s book, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys ( 2010) is designed to help parents cope with whining and complaining children.

Peter is a small rabbit who does nothing but whine. His mother warns him that if he keeps on whining and crying, he’ll have to go live with the Whimper-Whineys. His nocturnal adventures convince him his mother was right! If only he can get back home…

 The critique editor for this story wrote: I cannot imagine any parent or guardian not wanting to read this book to their child!…Parents everywhere applaud you!”

About Book

No one likes a whiner! Finally, a children’s book to help parents cope with whining and complaining children.

Peter is “a very small rabbit who did nothing but whine.” And of course, no one wants to be around anyone who is always whining, so Peter is not a very popular rabbit..

One day Peter’s mother warns him that if he cannot stop whining, he will have to go live with the Whimper-Whineys. And no one wants to do that!.

This fun, rhymed children’s adventure follows Peter as he hops into the woods and finds himself amid a group of frightening Whimper-Whineymen! He discovers that the Whimper-Whineys are ill-mannered and rude, and that it’s not very pleasant in Whimper-Whineland..

Will Peter learn to stop whining?.

My Thoughts

Once upon a time! There was a rabbit named Peter he had a bad habit. That habit was whining about everything. He let everything upset him so much he cried all the time. His mom was so tired of the his tantrums that she told him the Whimper Whineys were going to come get him to live with them if he didn't mind his manners.

The author's mother told this story to many children. Sherrill add rhymes to the story and put it in a book. I think she out did herself with this book. I enjoyed this one best out of all her books. It made me laugh because it almost sounded like it could be a rap. I pictured her sitting in a rocking chair rapping this story to kids and making whiney faces like Peter the whiney little rabbit.

I see this book becoming a real classic treasure . Your children will want to hear and read this story over and over again. If you have any whiners you must read them this book to them!

Most of Kalpart's illustrations were on black background depicting night and the Whimper-Whineys characters in the illustrations were hilarious. The Kalpart team did a excellent job of illustrating the tale Sherrill had written.

I highly recommend this book!!

I received a copy of this book from the author and Strategic Publishing Group for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my own opinion.
