Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Coloring Book Review

PETER LEARNS THAT WHINING AND COMPLAINING GETS YOU NOWHERE IN THIS CUTE COLORING BOOK BY SHERRILL S. CANNON

This coloring book version of the best-selling “whine-stopper” children’s story was designed for kids to enjoy reading the rhyming, as well as being able to illustrate their own version of Peter’s nocturnal adventure into the woods.

Peter’s mother warns him that if he doesn’t stop whining and crying, he’ll have to go live with the Whimper-Whineys. His adventure continues as he later hops into the woods and finds lots of frightening Whimper-Whineymen! He discovers that the Whimper-Whineys are very ill-mannered and rude, and that everything is sour in Whimper-Whineland. He decides his mother was right. If only he can get back home!

According to a recent critique, “I cannot imagine any parent or guardian not wanting to read this book to their child! … Parents everywhere applaud you!”

Christine Cazes5.0 out of 5 stars READ-COLOR-LEARNReviewed in the United States on August 7, 2020Verified PurchaseDo you need a “Peter” in your house to stop your children from whining? Sherrill S. Cannon’s coloring book, “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” is sure to solve the problem! This is a delightful lyrical story written in rhyme that truly engages young children. Peter, a small rabbit, resembles many children who want to be the boss and whine until they get their own way. This adorable award-winning story warns, “If you can’t stop that whining, I very much fear that the old Whimper-Whineys will look for you here.”
Children, like Peter, learn that they don’t want to live with the old Whimper-Whineys “in a land far away, where you’ll join them in whining and crying all day.” They will smile, laugh, and eventually agree that it would be unpleasant to live with “men with no manners” who whine and cry all day long.
As a reading specialist, mother, and grandmother, I highly recommend this book that teaches children the valuable skill of rhyming and reinforces the message that whining is undesirable. With the coloring book version of “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys,” children get the opportunity to visit a page for a longer period of time while they exercise their imagination and color the illustrations. In the end, they can take ownership of the book and personalize its message. This book is a “must” for every child’s library!
