My four year old daughter Mae says: It was pretty nice, I liked it. And it's very funny. Whimper Whineyland is not fun. I thought Peter should be happy the next day. I don't think whining and crying is a good thing to do. And you don't get what you want when you do that.

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).

Sherrill S. Cannon's book, "Peter and the Whimper-Whineys" is an absolute delight! The rhythm, the cadence, and indeed the story itself are so lyrical, one is bound to feel the urge to "hippity, hoppity hop" along with Peter the rabbit.

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

Peter and the Whimper-Whineys is a darling book for children. I thought that my grandchildren (ages 10 and 12) were beyond the age to enjoy this book, however, they proved me wrong and told me what a cute book this is and they are correct. It's a quick read, which is good to keep the attention of little children, but contains a good lesson for them about always whining to get what they want. The illustrations are adorable too. It is another great book from Sherrill Cannon who is the author of Santa's Birthday Gift as well.

This is my new favorite book to read to my 4 yr old who is going through the whine-about-everything and gotta-have-my-way stage. It was an instant improvement on the whining- he doesn't want to go live with the whimper-whineys either! I love it! I'm gonna buy copies for all my friends with kids this age!

Format: Paperback
Peter and The Whimper-Whineys is an exquisitely written children’s book by Sherrill S. Cannon. Peter is a young rabbit who often whines and cries when he doesn’t get his way. His mother warns him to stop or the Whimper-Whineys may just pay him a visit. Through his journey to Whimper-Whineland, Peter discovers that whining is not very attractive and that he needs to make some drastic changes in his own life.

This amazing children’s book is very creatively written and wonderfully illustrated. The plot is solid and contains a fun rhyming story that kids absolutely love and connect with easily. I read it to my daycare children with ages ranging from 18 months to 6 years old and it was a complete hit! They all sat excitedly anticipating what was going to happen next in the story and asked me to read it over and over again. All of the children asked questions and were relating Peter’s experiences to their own lives. One of the children stated after the story was read that he was going to stop whining and act better at home. I was very proud of him and said that Sherrill would be proud too! This book is a home run when it comes to a meaningful children’s book that relates a powerful life lesson. Children come away from this story feeling empowered and wanting to really exhibit good behaviors and understanding that bad behaviors are not acceptable.

I would highly recommend this children’s book to all parents, all daycare providers, all early learning centers, all schools and all libraries. This is truly a book that can make a difference in a child’s life in an easy to understand format. I cannot wait to read more of Sherrill Cannon’s wonderfully written children’s books!

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!!
