Excerpt from the book

Tina quarrels to get what she wants.

Wilamina quibbles to get her own way.

Irina whimpers so her opinion is heard.

Nina whines to at least have a say.

They stopped at the gift shop before leaving the Park Zoo.                                       When asked to choose one gift they could share, the children could not agree.
 Instead, they quarreled and quibbled, whimpered and whined.
Not listening to each other.
Shrieking and shouting out the gift that each of them wanted.

Balloon,” said Tina.
Octopus,” said Wilamina.
Oil paint,” said Irina.
Kayak,” said Nina.

“Great idea, kids! We’ll get a BOOK,” Mommy said.
