Manner-Man Review

“Manner-Man by Sherrill S. Cannon uses the power of a superhero to teach children the importance of being kind to others through their words and actions.Picture

When a little boy faces a bully at school he is at a loss as to what to do. That night, as he sleeps he hears these words “I am strong, and my flash is bright, And I will defend you and make things all right.” He learns that these words are used to summon Manner-Man, a superhero who fends off bullies and unkind words by teaching children to treat others as they want to be treated. Manner-Man is a hero who “helps to teach children what’s right and what’s wrong” and encourages them to stand up for good everyday.

Sherrill S. Cannon uses playful rhyme to engage readers all while teaching them the important lessons of sharing with others, being kind, and never using words that hurt. I love that she chose to incorporate some of the characters from her other books. Jimmy from Gimmie-Jimmy and Elisabeth from The Magic Word  team up with Manner-Man and help enforce the lessons they learned in their respective stories.

The illustrations by Kalpart are delightful. I especially like their depiction of Manner-Man who exhibits classic superhero qualities and characteristics.

I highly recommend picking up a copy of Manner-Man so your child can join the Manner-Man Team.”
