I hope she remembers this every day!
Peter and the Whimper-Whineys is a great book that will help rid your house of some of the whining! Another terrific rhymed text from Sherrill Cannon (we also love Santa's Birthday Gift in our house).
"My sister has more soup than I in her bowl,
She took too much jelly to put on her roll;
She's got more than I do, it's really not fair,"
Whined Peter while sliding back down in his chair. - Sherrill Cannon
With that, he is sent promptly to bed. As he contemplates his situation, he begins to doze and all of a sudden he finds himself standing outside. Happy about his freedom, he takes a walk but doesn't go far when he meets a Whimper-Whiney Man who leads him to Whimper-Whineyland. For the first time he gets a taste of his own medicine and realizes what he sounds like to his family. After escaping and going back home, he decides to have a better day. This story is charming and teaches children what whining sounds like. I would recommend this small book to any mother who wants to teach their children not to whine or they may end up in Whimper-Whineyland.
Written by Linda Weaver Clarke, author of the new mystery series "The Adventures of John and Julia Evans."
This story teaches a lesson in the importance of not whining while creating a memorable reference to what could happen after too much of it!!! My 2 older daughters will now tell my 3 year old to stop whining or she will have to visit the Whimper-Whineys!!!
This book is perfect for younger children as a read-aloud and for older children as a read-together. Children of all ages will love the rhythm and rhyme, and the illustrations that are set in the forest at night are exciting and mysterious! ENJOY!!!
What can one say but that...
Surprised I am not, at Ms. Cannon's Success,
Recipient of Seventeen National Awards, no less
For her tales, so delightful, music to one's ear
Go on then and get them for the kids you hold dear
Read them the story of Peter the bunny
Who changed his demeanor from sour to sunny.
Visit the land of the Whimper-Whineys Nation
And discover the reason for the big transformation

I think if there was one book to read to children about being whiney, this is it! I loved the re-hashed family story that the author put her own spin to. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Naila Moon
