Another Wonderful Review from Sarah Mazor for The Magic Word – Children’s Books That Promote Good Values

Another wonderful review from Sarah Mazor, this time for The Magic Word:

The Magic Word Review from Sarah Mazor

MazorBooks Reviewer:
With the help of inspired rhymes and lovely illustrations The Magic Word tells the story of Elisabeth Keys, a friendless little girl, who discovers the magic of being polite.

Sherrill S. Cannon, the author of this adorable book and a grandmother herself, still hears her mother’s voice in her head. “What’s the Magic Word?” her mother inquired way back when, as did my mother and many other moms who believed in teaching their kids manners.  I heartily encourage mothers and fathers and all caregivers of little ones, whether or not they have already introduced their charges to the magic words of “thank you” and “please,” to acquire Mrs. Cannon’s The Magic Word and reinforce the message time and again.

Please and thank you!

And Thank You to You, Sarah Mazor!!!

I received the following couple of notes from a mother who actually won two of my books for her daughter, each in a separate giveaway!!  (That’s pretty amazing!)    She had won The Magic Word earlier this year, and just recently won Manner-Man.  I love hearing about the children’s reactions, so I wanted to share this:

“We received Manner Man a couple days ago.  My daughter loves it.  She has had us read it to her several times already.   She now says I need to win her Gimme-Jimmy. Lol. Thanks so much for your awesome book and the giveaway.  We really appreciate winning another of your books…

 We are hoping to be settled into our new home by mid-October… I think Gimme-Jimmy will be a perfect home welcoming gift for Sofia.  She likes your Christmas book too.  Manner Man continues to be a favorite.  She takes it with her just about everywhere.”

If any other parents have stories to share, please do!

Creative Review from Mazor Books for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys

A lovely and very creative review by Sarah Mazor of Mazor Books for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys

Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Review by Mazor Books

MazorBooks Reviewer:
Sherrill S. Cannon’s book, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys is an absolute delight! The rhythm, the cadence, and indeed the story itself are so lyrical, one is bound to feel the urge to “hippity, hoppity, hop” along with Peter the rabbit.

What can one say but that…

Surprised I am not, at Ms. Cannon’s Success,
Recipient of Seventeen National Awards, no less.
For her tales, so delightful, music to one’s ear,
Go on then and get them for the kids you hold dear.

Read them the story of Peter the bunny,
Who changed his demeanor from sour to sunny.
Visit the land of the Whimper-Whineys Nation,
And discover the reason for the big transformation.

Thank you so much for that, Sarah!!!  I am also pleased to have my books included on the Mazor Books website, since specializes in “children’s books that promote good values, literacy, self-esteem, responsibility, respect, friendship, kindness, sharing, cleanliness, honesty and much more…”  Please take the time to check out her website for other positive books for children, including some written by her own children!


All my Sherrill S. Cannon eBooks are now $4.99!!!

I have finally got the prices for the eBook versions of my children’s books down to $4.99 each!  I realize that most small children love picture books that they can hold and look at (and take to bed with them!), but it is also nice to have an eBook version when traveling or attempting to entertain a child when all you have with you is your electronic device.  Since I have always told my grandchildren that I would be willing to get them something from the iStore (or elsewhere) for UNDER $5, I thought it was silly that my own eBooks cost more than that!  So now they are available – all five of them – Manner-Man, Gimme-Jimmy, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, and Santa’s Birthday Gift – all with at least two awards – for under $5 – and I am hoping that I will be able to share my stories with even more children… for that’s what it’s all about!

Comments from Judges of Gimme-Jimmy, winner of the Silver Medal in the Global eBook Awards!

A nice review of Gimme-Jimmy by the judges of the Global eBook Awards – Gimme-Jimmy was awarded the Silver Medal!

(Below are the comments we received, not all of the judges provided comments.)


The illustrations complemented the text. This would be a good book to share with children who bully others.


Gimme-Jimmy is a very engaging rhyming book about a bully named Jimmy and the lessons he learns about manners, politeness and sharing. His father’s unique way of letting Jimmy know that he is being poorly behaved and always saying “gimmie” leads Jimmy to understand the consequences of his actions, and allows him to choose a better path, make friends and no longer be a bully. Excellent book – will be well received as a read aloud or early reader
