As you can see, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys starts preventing whining at a very early age!
I just returned from signing 275 copies of Santa’s Birthday Gift for 3 schools and a store in the Philadelphia PA area. I also did lots of readings and decided that the most fun of being an author is reading books to the kids!
Authors of Children’s Books Strategic Book Group has added a new Fan Page for Authors of Children’s Books! Please check it out!! You can find me there, with lots of my author friends. Don’t forget that Christmas is coming, and books make great gifts!!!

There are lots of complaints about whining children, so as a former teacher and grandmother of nine I offer the following suggestion: Frequently it helps for children to be read fun-stories that illustrate the unpleasantness of bad behavior and ways to correct it. Sometimes children don’t understand how annoying the sound of whining can be. My latest children’s book, “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” by Sherrill S. Cannon is a story of a little rabbit who does nothing but whine. This rhyming book should be read with alternating normal voice and whining voice, according to the character speaking. Children learn that Whimper-Whineyland is not a fun place to be, not just for all the whining and crying that goes on but for all the other unpleasant character traits exemplified!!! The book can be found on amazon.com where there is the read-inside-the-book feature, as well as on bn.com. I hope that this might help your child as well as it has helped my children and grandchildren!
Peter and the Whimper-Whineys by Sherrill S. Cannon is a great book for parents who have children who whine (almost all!) Check out the book at amazon.com (where the read-inside-the-book is a feature) and also barnes&noble.com. I am now consolidating my blogs on www.sherrillcannon.com See you there!
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?
Peter and the Whimper-Whineys is getting closer to release. The lay-out has been approved and the book has been sent to the print proof stage. I am previewing the cover on the blog today. The website is not yet live. Stay tuned!!!
