‘Peter and the Whimper-Whineys’ by Sherrill S. Cannon – Book Review by LAWonder10

September 15, 2013

8573894[1]Have you ever felt grumbly and complaintive?  Do you like being around people who are that way?  What about someone who whines a lot, do you ever want them to just stop it?  Well, Peter’s mother was very tired hearing his complaints, whining and throwing fits.  One day she could stand it no longer so sent him to his room early and to bed.

Peter’s mother had often told him if he did not stop his behavior, he would end up in the Land of the Whimper-Whineys.   Is there really such a place?Peter did not believe there was until  he found himself there.

This is a cute, rhyming story.  It is great for ages 2 to 8.  It is also a good practice book for slightly advanced children’s reading.  The illustrations, by Kalpart, are done well but it isn’t their best work.  I realize the darkened pages were done for effect, but it was a little too much.  Sherrill’s story was very good, yet not her best either.  The rhyming at  times didn’t “flow”well. It felt a little awkward.

The Key Point: It is a great story to encourage a more positive behavior in children. (Many adults could benefit as well.)

My review of this book gives it a solid Four Stars rating.

*Disclaimer: I was generously sent this book by the author for an honest review, of which I have given.

Peter’s mother had often  told him about a land where only wimper-whiney’s dwelt. He never heard of such a place….until he found himself there one time.
