Peter and the Whimper-Whineys was the Bronze Winner in Fables for K-3rd Grade in the 2011 Readers Favorite Award and was a USA Best Books Award Finalist.

This is a children’s book to help parents cope with whining and complaining children, disguised as a fun story. Peter is a very small rabbit whose mother warns him that if he cannot stop whining, he will have to go live with the Whimper-Whineys in the woods. And no one wants to do that!

How a Bully Learns to Share


Her wonderful new book, Gimme-Jimmy, begins:  “James Alexander’s nickname was Jim, but nobody would be friends with him. No one wanted to play with Jimmy, for Jim Alexander always said, ‘Gimme.’ ”

Imagine what happens when every time Jimmy the bully says the word “Gimme,” his hand begins to grow larger! How can he ever turn the situation around? Would being polite help?
