Lovely Child’s YouTube Review of The Magic Word

What is the Magic Word?

What is the Magic Word?

I am so happy to share this wonderful review of The Magic Word…

Elisabeth has become very popular, and appears in all my subsequent books as well. One of my favorite fans (age 5) told me that she always took The Magic Word to bed with her because she loved Elisabeth.  When she turned 6, and I asked her what was her favorite book, she replied, “Gimme-Jimmy“.  I said, “What happened to Elisabeth?  I thought she was your favorite?”  She answered, “But don’t you know that Elisabeth is IN Gimme-Jimmy?”

Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! has another 5-star review!

Thank you to Author Karen Vaughn for this nice review!


Sometimes it helps for kids to listen before jumping to the wrong conclusions. When Rosemary decides she no longer wants to go to school based on what she thought she heard her teacher say about getting mice, webs, and she assumes, if there are webs there must be spiders. Wanting to be sure she heard right Rosemary’s mom takes her to the school to get some answers to her fears. After the teacher clarifies the situation, Rosemary feels a lot better and realizes she really should have listened better and discovers a neat surprise for the class.

This was very well written and teaches a lesson about listening better. It also teaches young kids about computers and the internet through Rosemary facing her fears. Like Ms. Cannon’s other books, it is written in rhyme and is easy to read and follow. I thought it was a cute read even as an adult.

MICE, SPIDERS AND WEBS…OH MY! is a five star read and recommended for children ages 6-8.”

Linda Weaver Clarke has invited me for an interview in early June.  I sent her a copy of Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! and this is her response:

“What an adorable story! I loved it. I wrote a short review and gave it 5 stars. I’ll add my review to our interview, too, so my readers will know how much I loved it. This is my review:

This is an adorable story about a child’s misunderstandings about the computer. It’s totally done in rhyme and I loved it. My kids and grandchildren have always loved stories in rhyme. Thanks for another fun children’s book.

Best Wishes,
Linda Weaver Clarke”

Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars A MASTERPIECE FOR THE YOUNG AND YOUNG OF HEART, April 23, 2015
By M. Moran Bishop
This review is from: Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! (Paperback)

“Sherrill S. Cannon’s newest addition to her marvelous children’s books, Mice & Spiders & Webs… Oh My, probably rates among the best children’s books I have read to date.

I felt Rosie’s pain and fear at the prospect of facing her fears of Mice, Spiders, and yes Spider Webs. I knew her bravery when with the help of her mother was willing to face her fears and attempt to work through them. And I laughed at the outcome, down to the ‘female’s only.’

Never have I read a little book that charmed me so, with a message so subtly written that shows how one’s fears can be baseless. Ms. Cannon has definitely another hit on her hands and one that I wouldn’t be surprised if it stole the hearts of each and every child who read it.
It is more than a teaching tool, more than a fascinating story, and much more than the cleverly done rhyming verse that is so popular for the young ones. It is a masterpiece, fit to join the ranks of any of the great children’s stories that have enchanted and delighted generations of young ones through the years.

If this reader whose childhood is so far behind them can find the joy and beauty in this little story, my bet is any child will also find all that and more. The Illustrations by Kalpart, completely swept me away with the brilliant colors and how they followed the story so completely. So highly do I consider this book that I fully intend to have a copy of my own. Not just for the little ones, but for those times I wish to laugh and remember those fears and pleasures from my childhood.”

She also included this nice comment on Facebook: “A fabulously written children’s book that will forever delight and teach us all, by Sherrill S. Cannon”

Thank you to Jannifer Powelson, Author, for the great review of Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My!

Oh My…what a cute book!
By J. C. Powelson

“Getting children to listen not only to their parents, but also their teachers, is key. In Sherrill S. Cannon’s latest release, “Mice and Spiders and Webs…Oh My!”, she weaves a beautifully rhyming story that will delight young readers. Children will also learn the importance of good listening skills and the basics of computer technology. Early readers and adults alike will enjoy the charming verse Cannon uses to spin her tale. The colorful and catchy illustrations help make the book even more enjoyable. Though many youngsters are afraid of critters such as mice or eight-legged spiders, this book will teach kids to embrace the creatures’ technological counterparts, computers and their accessories, wholeheartedly!”
