The Whose-its and Whats-its
The Whose-its and Whats-its is an imaginative children's picture book which teaches children to value differences. Colorful, full-page illustrations and rhymes will delight children ages 3 through 10.
The Whose-its wore bright stripes
and polka-dot togs,
And shirts with fat buttons,
and zippers, and frogs,
They mismatched their layers
because that was fun--
If one shirt was plenty,
they wore more than one.
They also spent all day playing.
The Whats-its were serious and lived by a creed,
A Big Book of Rules they all learned to read.
They never made waste and worked all the time--
No music, no dancing, no singing, no rhyme.
No funny fashions, no hats, and no shoes--
They all looked the same with nothing to lose.
No buttons on shirts, they just wore gray smocks
And very long, wrinkled, all same size socks.
The Whose-its and Whats-its live in the same valley, but they DON'T get along . . . until Corlin, the youngest and smallest Whats-it gets into trouble for following the rules. It takes the whole community of Whose-its and Whats-its to save him, teaching both groups that they can learn a lot from each other.
