Above is the link to the review – Here is an excerpt:
“…Manner-Man takes on problem solving and dealing with bullies. He is the first hero in any of her books, not including the kids who take advice on the chin and change for the better by book’s end. Manner-Man has the kids solve problems calmly with words, though not words that hurt. When someone hits, pushes, takes a toy, or any other injustice, he has them shout “Not nice” to the offender…Manner-Man seems to be a combination of the last four books and their messages…Writing rhyming stories, each a lesson in good manners, self-control, and making friends is what Ms. Cannon does best… Peter and the Whimper-Whineys taught kids the perils of being whiney and pestering. Gimme-Jimmy taught kids about politeness and making friends. The Magic Word taught the best way to make and keep friends is with the words please and thank you. Now, Manner-Man is on the scene to bring all of those lessons together… Kalpart again does the illustrations. This has brought a consistency in the books making them ideal as a series. The kids are bright-eyed, cheery, and full of life…Manner-Man is a good introduction to Ms. Cannon’s rhythmic style and kid-friendly stories. One of this decade’s prolific children’s authors, Ms. Cannon writes with ease. Her books are great read-alouds and make wonderful books for kids with advanced beginner reading skills.”
I know you will be happy to know that Addie is now also a character in Manner-Man, and is the little girl in the turquoise blue dress on the cover!!
Addie is also on the Acknowledgements Page, as Captain of the Manner-Man Team, and there are many other children’s names there as team members – many of whom are also suffering with Juvenile Myositis. We are hoping to help find a cure for this incurable children’s disease. 50% of the cost of the books on the CureJM Fundraiser site goes to the CureJM Foundation to help find a cure!!!
Please share this with your friends and family… Let’s find a cure!!
There’s nothing like getting the actual print copy of a newly published book…! Manner-Man arrived at the Keys the same day we did… I hope he appreciates the weather as much as we do! I really love this book…
I am thrilled to announce that my newest children’s book, Manner-Man, has just been released to marketing and should be available very soon. Manner-Man is a very special book, about a superhero who can help control bullies and teach children ways to be considerate of others, and incorporates messages and characters found within some of my previous books.
It will be included in the books available on my CureJM Fundraiser website, CureJM Fundraiser where 50% of the cost of the books goes to the CureJM Foundation to help find a cure for Juvenile Myositis, an incurable children’s disease. Addie’s Angels Fans should find this book especially fun, since we have put Addie’s character on the cover with all the other children! See if you can find her!!
Manner-Man should be available on amazon and barnesandnoble.com soon!!
I enjoyed reading to the children at the Flagler Beach, Florida Library. The kids were great and some of the parents asked me to come back next year and read to the elementary school as well. The librarian has asked me to return also!
