Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! Children’s book spreads seeds of learning

Award-winning author Sherrill S. Cannon introduces her new children’s book

ROCHESTER, N.Y.Aug. 25, 2015 — Mice & Spiders & Webs… Oh MY!

by Sherrill S. Cannon

Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! is written by award-winning author Sherril S. Cannon. After publishing six previous rhyming books Cannon is at it again with another fun filled adventure. Rosemary, the little girl in the story, misinterprets what the teacher is saying and has a meltdown because she refuses to go to school. Ms. Eddy, Rosemary’s teacher had told Rosemary that they would be getting a mouse, spider and webs, or did she? Read this heartwarming story and find out that Rosemary is about to be surprised when animals would not be part of the curriculum after all, but a computer language course was about to be introduced to the students. Your child will understand computer language after reading this fun-filled book.

Cannon, being a teacher herself can relate to Rosemary’s dilemma and realizes how children misunderstand many things a teacher says in a classroom.  A passion of learning in a fun new dimension is what Cannon instills in her rhyming story. Now when I think of a mouse, a spider, and a spiders web I will always think of this charming book Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My!

The illustrations are bright and colorful and depict the actions of the story. All books from Sherrill Cannon are also listed on the last two pages of the book.

If you a lover of rhyme, other Sherrill Cannon books by the author are:

My Fingerpaint Masterpiece, Manner-Man, Gimme-Jimmy, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, and Santa’s Birthday Gift. These books would make great gifts for special occasions, birthdays and holidays. Give the gift of reading!

Mice & Spider & Webs… Oh My!

Seventh in a series of successful educational books for children, “Mice & Spider & Webs… Oh My!” is a rhyming story about learning to be a good listener. Rosemary is a school child who tells her mother she is afraid to go to school because the teacher told her she would have a mouse. Not only that, but Rosemary was also fearful of spiders, which she was sure would be in the classroom because her teacher was talking about webs. Oddly enough, this was all to be only for females. So Rosemary’s mom talked to Mrs. Eddy her teacher, only to discover that she was telling her class about a new surprise, computers that speak, and have RA M and ROM. The mouse is a computer mouse, used to select, and the web is the internet, where the class would write news on the web’s school page. The “only for females” information Rosemary mis-heard was supposed to be “e-mail,” another listening glitch. Integrated into the illustrations of “Mice & Spider & Webs…. Oh My!” are pictures of some of the author’s other books. The last page of special notes also repeats special computer terms used, and asks the reader, “Are you a good listener?” “Mice & Spiders & Webs… Oh My!” is a winner for children age 6 and up, with plenty of humor and action to keep attention riveted.
