We all like to pretend that our children always use those sweet and innocent voices that make our hearts melt. But the truth is, that sometimes they have been known to whimper, and yes, even whine. If only they could hear themselves, and realize that they can choose happiness in every situation, things would get better.
"Peter and the Whimper-Whineys," another tale skillfully woven by author Sherrill Cannon, is a book that may do just that. You can put on your whiniest voice to read this one without resorting to whining back at your children in real life. Peter is a whiny little rabbit. His mother warns him that a trip to Whimper-Whiney land awaits if he is not careful. Sneaking out one night after some particularly bad whining, and he gets a taste of his own medicine from, you could say, professional whiners. In the end, he realizes just how beautiful the world is and all he has to be thankful for. The only downside, is the tale is so fascinating, you may find your child asking, as mine did, if they can see Whimper-Whiney land for themselves.
