Now the “Follow Me” is up and running!

Now the “Follow Me” allows you to sign up to get notification of my Website Posts by email messages.  Yay!!  (Now I just hope you sign up for it!)  I must say it was fun to go to my husband’s computer to have him “Follow Me”… It doesn’t happen all that often! (lol)

imageNow that my new book, My Fingerpaint Masterpiece, is on its way to the printer, I’m going to share some of my reviews from my Junior Reviewers.  I asked several of them to read the book ahead of time – without illustrations – to get some feedback along the way.  I will be delighted to share them with you!  Please stay tuned!

Slight roadblock on my Website… Sorry!

Apparently my website is a “Work in Progress” – and what used to be the RSS button is now “Follow Sherrill” – only it is being corrected because right now it leads to Podcasts.

Also, please ignore the “Contact” and Author sign-up box on the right, since that is not directed properly yet either!

It’s all a miscommunication from me to my wonderful Webmaster, so I take full blame…

Stay tuned for notification when the website is up and running properly, with a Follow button that actually allows you to enter your email address and get my blog feeds whenever they are posted!

Thanks for your patience!


New “Follow” link on my Website – See RSS at top right!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Way To Teach Manners, January 11, 2014

This review is from: Manner-Man 
This book was sent to my sons and it arrived in time for my son Jack’s birthday. He has been reading it every day since. He loves it! This coming from a kid who loves reading non-fiction books. He stopped reading it long enough to ask me what the author meant by “butt in line” because we say “cut in line”. The book is wonderful and has helped Jack already. He has been reading it aloud when his youngest brother, Ryan who is 2 years old, is in the room. I’ve always taught my kids manners but as I recently told Jack when he first read the title of the book, “just because you think you know something doesn’t mean you can’t learn more.” It never hurts to encourage manners even if your kids already know their manners. Sometimes you might miss something. I think Jack is discovering that with this book. Get this book to help encourage manners in your kids! Just don’t forget that they learn by example as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars I’m Gonna Have to Read It Again, January 20, 2014

This review is from: Peter and the Whimper-Whineys 
I received this book last week and I had wanted to get a review up before now but life gets in the way so here it is now. I thought this was a really cute book. I had my 9 yr old read it which he saw it was from the same author as Manner Man and he grabbed it immediately. He read it and when he was done I asked him if he had liked it. He said, “Not as much as Manner Man. But I’m gonna have to read it again to make sure.” Now that should be a review for you. He has to read it again to make sure he doesn’t like it as much as another book. I would say that’s a definite like. Now if only Ms. Cannon had one about tattle-telling.
