A MAGIC Book!, 5 stars
This is my new favorite book to read to my 4 yr old who is going through the whine-about-everything and gotta-have-my-way stage. It was an instant improvement on the whining- he doesn’t want to go live with the whimper-whineys either! I love it! I’m gonna buy copies for all my friends with kids this age!
The Magic Word by Sherrill S. Cannon received a nice 5-star review from Reader’s Favorite:
“Elisabeth did not use good manners. She never said “please” or “thank you” and she did not like to share. She and her mother planned a birthday party. They made invitations and sent them to all her friends. Each day Elisabeth checked the mail to see who was coming to her party. But there were no replies.
Her manners hurt friendships and kept people away. Her mother told her it was time to change. Elisabeth learned the magic words, “please” and “thank you.” The next day at school Elisabeth remembered to say “please.” Her classmates were surprised. They were shocked when they heard her say “thank you.” Elisabeth found it was fun to share and to give to others. She asked her classmates to “please” come to her party.
While this book is written for children ages 4-8, I know several adults that could learn from this tale. The message is an important one. Sherrill S. Cannon presents it in a simple and easy to understand way. Children will like the rhythm of the words. They will love the illustrations which are bright colored and appealing. “Please,” “thank you,” sharing and all good manners are an important lesson that sometimes is lost in our society. I don’t think manners should ever become obsolete.”
