Editorial Reviews

Young Peter wants to learn how to whistle so he can call his dog, Willie. Peter huffs and puffs but he can’t make a toot. After weeks' worth of wheezing, Peter’s practice finally pays off.

Ezra Jack Keats’ short tale delivers young listeners an important lesson about practice and perseverance. Performer Jane Harvey brims with warmth, as she lends a sympathetic and reassuring voice to Peter’s predicament. With its message of learning and growth, Whistle for Willie presents a story with which three- to six-year-olds can relate.

I love the illustrations that play with the audio!

We've been slowly going through and buying the audible books from the With Synchronized Images category and have found that some are mis-categorized and don't have images. This one DOES have the original illustrations and we just love it! This is such a beautiful story, we're going through and getting all the Keats books!
