Peter and the Whimper Whineys by Sherrill S Cannon is a story with a moral presented in a way designed to affect young listeners in a subtle manner, and it seems likely that concentration on such fascinating “food for thought” will work. Every other page contains a line drawing begging to be colored in, so a great deal of time will be spent thinking about Peter’s woes. Peter whimpers and whines a lot, but most children behave in the way this rabbit does sometimes, and repetition is the secret. Hint – hint – hint – Peter’s Mommy doesn’t like him whining. Hint – hint – hint – his sister doesn't like it either. Hint – hint – hint – Peter is sent to bed because he whimpers, whines, and behaves badly, and then, bored, he wanders off alone and has a scary experience.
Peter and the Whimper Whineys Coloring Book by Sherrill S Cannon is an absolute delight. It is easy for an adult to read the story aloud, and it’s extremely tempting to do it in different voices. A whine for Peter, growing through impatience to truly cross for Mommy, and a sad, resigned whimper for the group of Whineys crying enough tears to form a pond. There is one of the “coloring book” pages, provided by Kalpart, for every page of text. Each would challenge a child to choose the right colors and stay within the lines, creating a book that would be treasured for years, until the youngster could read it for him or herself. Peter and the Whimper Whineys Coloring Book is a sneakily-perfect gift and a must-have for every child!
