The following is a review of I Like to Whine by Kelly Jameson the author of the Award-Winning Suspense Thriller DEAD ON the Runner-Up 2006 DIY Los Angeles Book Festival
This is a fun and different reading experience for both parent and child. Let’s face it, we all whine, even ‘us’ adults. Kids whine too, and as a parent, it can be frustrating. What I like about this book is that it reminds parents that kids have the same moods we do and don’t always know the best way to express themselves. And that whining is normal human behavior, no matter what your age. I also like the humor—I laughed out loud more than a few times—and the fun illustrations. What’s really great is the way the book is set up—the child can read the parent’s part (the wise old owl) and the parent can read the child’s part (the whining kid); both will have a few laughs while the child gets to hear how whining sounds and tries to react as a parent might. I highly recommend this entertaining children’s book for all children and their little whiners (or parents)!
