I had a lovely Book-reading event at Pages, A Bookstore in Manhattan Beach, CA, joined by fellow children’s author, Sheri Fink!  Two bestselling children’s authors at one event – pretty special.  My sister, Judy Shaffer, was able to attend and held the book illustrations up for the children to see as we read the books.  Thank you to Cherish, the Pages manager, for allowing us such a wonderful occasion, and I hope that any of you who live near the South Bay will take a look at the store.  Both Sherri and I have our books available there!

Manners grease the wheels of society, allowing people to get along with one another by showing mutual respect – and that is no small thing! Manner-Man is a brightly illustrated, rhyming softcover children’s picturebook by multiple award-winning children’s author Sherrill S. Cannon, designed to teach little ones about standing up to bullies who say hurtful things, and about the positive power of polite behavior. “Elisabeth asked to use Manner-Man too / To help teach her friends to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.'” An upbeat story with a valuable lesson, Manner-Man is a choice pick especially for parents, babysitters, and preschool or grade-school educators to share with children. Also highly recommended are Sherrill S. Cannon’s previous kid-friendly picturebooks with positive social messages, including “Gimme-Jimmy” (9781618972675, $13.00), “Magic Word” (9781609769093, $12.50), “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” (9781609115173, $13.00), and “Santa’s Birthday Gift” (9781608608249, $11.50).
