Love You When You Whine

Emily Jenkins; Pictures by Sergio Ruzzier

Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)

Have you ever known a child who doesn’t occasionally whine? Or hit, or forget to say please, or refuse to share, or interrupt, or throw a tantrum, or ask for every toy in the store? We may like to pretend otherwise, but these are things small children do . . . and we continue to love them even when they misbehave.
 
This amusing catalog of bad behaviors is playfully illustrated in warm watercolors. Together, text and art present funny and familiar scenes that grownups and children everywhere will recognize and want to talk about.
 
Love You When You Whine is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
