Book Review: Whiny Whiny Rhino by McBoop

Author: McBoop

Book Synopsis:

Can Tiny Tiny Rhino have a fun day?

Or will all of his whining get in the way?

If you’ve ever been worried to try something new,

then Whiny Whiny Rhino is the book for you!


The story’s message is like the Mark Twain quote, “I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” We all get apprehensive when encountering new experiences and this often leads us to avoid ever trying anything new. Just having a little courage to try new things can often lead to a much more exciting and enriching life.


I received a free copy for an honest review.

Whiny Whiny Rhino is a rhyming picture book for young children. It has cute and colorful pictures as well as a  good lesson for children. 

The littlest rhino in his family, Tiny Tiny Rhino, is afraid to do anything. While everyone else is having fun, he’s too afraid to try new things. By the end of the book, he finally decides to try something new with his friends and he has so much fun!

The colorful pictures and the rhythm of the text will keep the attention of children. I like books like this one that also teach a lesson. This would be a good book to read to young children!

      I did. They were different but in a good way. I think children would like them.
