October is National Bullying Prevention Month – Call on “Manner-Man”!



I received a very nice note from Sharon Fialco, author of the Starabella Book Series which also deals with the issue of young children and bullying…  Manner-Man is a Superhero who helps children cope with bullying!!

Sherrill, I just want to add this about your books – your fun and gentle approach is wonderful. The very youngest children should be taught proper social behavior in a gentle, entertaining way. These are their learning years. The Starabella books do the same. Most children are very unhappy to see their peers treated unfairly or cruelly. We want to encourage them be pro-active and know that standing up for another is the “cool” thing to do. We also want to show kids who bully a much better way to feel good about themselves.

So thrilled to receive an autographed copy of Christmas on Main Street from bestselling author JoAnn Ross!  The play, “ABC December”, is written by me and my daughter, Kerry Gallagher, and published by Lazy Bee Scripts.  JoAnn Ross uses the play as part of a Holiday performance given by the heroine of the novella, Christmas in Shelter Bay.  Her main character Kelli is a kindergarten teacher, which is especially fun for us since Kerry is also currently a kindergarten teacher!

Awesome Review of Manner-Man by Mazor Books

MM2I am honored by the awesome review of Manner-Man by Sarah Mazor of Mazor Books.  “Mazor Books promotes children’s books and children’s books’ authors who celebrate good values and seek to enhance children’s intellectual growth, emotional health and physical well-being.”

Please click here for review:   Mazor Books Review of Manner-Man

“MazorBooks Reviewer:
The superhero of superheroes arrived in town!
True, Batman and Spider-Man and their ilk save the innocent from the claws of evil men, but seriously, how relevant and applicable are they to your kids’ lives?

Enter Manner-Man!

Author Sherrill S. Cannon’s creation ought to be introduced in every household with kids and to all teachers and children’s counselors!  Indeed, Manner-Man’s prowess and his influence on kids’ comportment and their social interaction will overshadow the legends of Superman and Wonder Woman! And, mark my word: As the legend of Manner-Man spreads and thrives so will the quality of families’ lives around the globe.

Sherrill S. Cannon’s delightful and award-winning style displayed in Peter and the Whimper-Whineys and The Magic Word is present in this lovely book as well, as the author manipulates words and phrases and renders them deliciously rhymed.”

Thank you Sarah…
