Great Review for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys! Remember, Easter is coming soon – and Peter is a Rabbit!

Thank you to Naila Moon for this awesome review!!!

Whine-Stopper!  Happy Easter!!

Whine-Stopper! Happy Easter!!

Summary:
“In a house in the forest all covered with vines, Lived a very small rabbit who did nothing but whine.” Thus begins the rhymed story of Peter and the Whimper-Whineys. Peter’s mother warns him that if he cannot 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…!

My review:
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. Apparently, this story had been told by her own mother many times over, the author simply put it to rhyme. She did that very well, I might add.

This story is meant to be a “moral” story making note of consequences for ones actions. I was totally immersed! Even being adult, I got it and kids would too.

The illustrations were top notch which is quite interesting since they were all in dark and muted colors for most of the book. This may seem odd for a children’s book but actually it is quite purposeful in this case and worked well.

Every kid, everywhere, needs to read this book. 5 stars without a doubt!

No More Whining!

No one likes a whiner!  Finally, a children’s book to help parents cope with whining and complaining children. Peter is “a very small rabbit who did nothing but whine.” And, of course, no one wants to be around anyone who is always whining, so Peter is not a very popular rabbit.

One day Peter’s mother warns him that if he cannot stop whining, he will have to go live with the Whimper-Whineys. And no one wants to do that!

 This fun rhymed children’s adventure follows Peter as he hops into the woods and finds himself amid a group of frightening Whimper-Whineymen! He discovers that the Whimper-Whineys are ill-mannered and rude, and that it’s not very pleasant in Whimper-Whineland.

Will Peter learn to stop whining?
