I had a lovely morning reading to combined kindergarten classes at my granddaughter’s school. She was so happy to be my “illustration holder” – and thanks to my awesome illustrator, she is the little girl on the My Little Angel cover!
They also loved The Magic Word, Manner-Man and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys! Amazingly attentive children!!!
A reminder that Easter is Approaching, and Peter is a Rabbit – although one who whines too much…
Although your child probably never whines, Peter’s experience with the Whimper-Whineys might solve any potential whining problem.
Just read the story aloud, using your best whining voice for Peter when he whines and for the Whimper-Whineys when they speak, and your child will get the message!! Peter and the Whimper-Whineys is a real whine-stopper!

Heeding the advice of an amazon top reviewer, who suggested always “liking” a review that someone has taken time to write for me, I decided to go back and look at and “like” some of the reviews.
I was delighted to find this one for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, which I am now sharing:
“I received this book last week and I had wanted to get a review up before now but life gets in the way so here it is now. I thought this was a really cute book. I had my 9 yr old read it which he saw it was from the same author as Manner Man and he grabbed it immediately. He read it and when he was done I asked him if he had liked it. He said, “Not as much as Manner Man. But I’m gonna have to read it again to make sure.” Now that should be a review for you. He has to read it again to make sure he doesn’t like it as much as another book. I would say that’s a definite like. Now if only Ms. Cannon had one about tattle-telling.”
This was a verified review from an “amazon customer”, so I thank you if you are reading this!!!
And thank you to Gisela Hausmann for the suggestion!!
As most of you know, my newest book, My Little Angel, will be released soon, and I have contacted many of my Kid Reviewers to request another review! I was delighted to get this response from Crystal of CastleviewAcademy.com confirming Tristan and Kallista are looking forward to another review!
“You must have heard me tell the children earlier today that I had an email from you that need a reply 😉 Or maybe it was Kallista splashing some milk in her eyes and Tristan saying she would cry a lake of sour tears like the Whimper Whineys….Time continues to fly by! We’re doing more hands-on school at the moment which is fun, but more time consuming – but worth it for the learning and the time together! Tomorrow we’ll do an art project together – Kallista always calls them fingerpaint masterpieces – no matter what the medium.
Yes, Tristan and Kallista will be thrilled and honoured to review your latest masterpiece!”
