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! From creative team McBoop, comes the story of the whiny rhino with the big head and the even bigger imagination.

Bottom line, this book is so cute. I love the illustrations, and the message is one that even we as adults have to remember: do not be afraid to try something new. We need to stop worrying about everything and just have fun!

Tiny Tiny Rhino worries about everything. He’s scared to do fun or daring things with his brothers, and sits around whining because he can’t do these things. His brothers pestered him, telling him to toughen up and quit hiding inside by himself. Sadly, his brothers really tormented him. I know this is common, but I still felt bad for the little guy! I’m sure children will identify with his worries, not to mention his mean brothers, and will cheer when he is finally able to conquer his fears and make his brothers and friends proud. I love the ending message as well. You don’t have to be big and strong to have fun, you just have to be willing to try something new. The story rhymes, so it can be read out loud is a sing-song fashion.

The illustrations are amazing. Tiny is little blue rhino with a huge head and a tiny body. He has a sweet little personality, and some of the cutest facial expressions. This is one of the most colorful books I have read. Each page bursts with various shades of purple, red, hot pink, turquoise, yellow, and lime green. Young eyes will be stimulated, and the shiny pages will have them reaching out to touch them.

All in all, this is a wonderful book for readers of all ages. It presents important messages about life, and it’s even a little funny at times. The illustrations are the icing on the cake, and I was completely delighted by the entire reading experience. I would definitely recommend this book to shy or timid children who need to learn that breaking out of their shell does not have to be scary.
