This book is a series of scenarios of animals whining and the wise old owl gently chiding them and making suggestions as to why whining is inappropriate.

As a former teacher, guidance counselor and current parent and grandparent, I am distinctly cognizant that as far as kids go, there are no experts.  Expertise is based on experience and learning.  We may learn out of the same books but eachand every one of us have different experiences with our own families.

Kids whine, good kids and kids that aren’t so good, they all whine. Many times their intent isn’t to whine and sometimes that is exactly what they intend. Whining isn’t indicative of a “bad” kid. It is normal. Normal doesn’t make it any easier to listen to, day in and day out. If this book, aimed at preschoolers, can even slow down some of the whining, it will be a monumental contribution to parental mental health.

Hopefully it will make your child smile and perhaps you too, can smile seeing the normalcy of their behavior. If nothing else, this book may help you to appreciate how good your own child really is.

Great tool for children and parents
I Like To Whine!: Dealing With Whining Children by William G. Bentrim -- I had my 8yo son read this with me. My son whines constantly ,and when he read this , he could relate!! It made him think about those things and i asked him, "are you going to whine anymore?" and he said "probably not except for the car ride" hahahahha . Its a great tool for all children, not just preschool age. Highly recommend.

A Delightful Book for Children
"I Like to Whine" written by William G. Bentrim, a former teacher and guidance counselor, is an absolutely delightful book for preschoolers about whining behavior. Each page has a comical character behaving in a typical childish whining way, and a wise character responding in a kind, gentle, and correct reaction to that behavior. I love that the book does not scold children, but instead gives wise advice at the children's learning level, and Mom and Dad are always respected as authority figures. This is the perfect book for new parents to begin reading to their children, and as the children begin to read, the parents will enjoy listening to children teaching themselves.

At the end of the book the author gives tips on how to use the book to encourage good behavior and how to deal with difficulties along the way. "I Like to Whine" is a perfect book for parents and grandparents to teach good behavior before problems start.

A Great Tool For Parents
I Like To Whine is a really good book for young children.
I found it to be highly entertaining and informative. It has some really cool illustrations that would keep a young child interested.
One thing I really loved was the wise old owl and the advice that he gave.
Overall, I think that I Like To Whine is a great book for teaching children about why it isn't so good to whine. I'd recommend this book to parents with young children aged around 3 - 6 years old.
My Rating: φφφφφ
