San Diego Examiner’s Wonderful Manner-Man Review



Lovely review by Victoria Ross of Manner-Man in the San Diego Examiner

Manner-Man Review…

“I am strong, and my flash is bright, And I will defend you and make things all right.” These are the magic words to call upon Manner-Man – a superhero who can help control bullies and teach children ways to be considerate of others.

Manner-Man is the latest gift from author, Sherrill S. Cannon. It is a gift to children and parents. This is a wonderful book to be shared within the family of parents, grandparents, siblings, as well as read together with teachers at preschools and Sunday schools.

Manner-Man arrives, shouting “To the Rescue”, helping children learn about sharing and warning about not ‘hitting with words.’ He teaches that if someone starts pushing, just shout out “not nice!”

Ms. Cannon incorporates messages and characters found within some of her earlier books – helping children learn how to cope with bullies and look within themselves for their inner superhero! What a constructive and positive way to help children lead by example. This book empowers children to grow as a leader of positive actions, which benefit all around them!

This is the fifth rhyming children’s book by this award-winning author whose other bestselling books include Gimme-Jimmy, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys and Santa’s Birthday Gift.

Former teacher Sherrill S. Cannon has won a dozen awards for her four previous rhyming books and is also the author of six published and internationally performed plays for elementary school children. She has been called “a modern day Dr.Seuss” – GMTA Review
