“How Christmas can be about both Santa and Jesus”

“With Christmas right around the corner, it’s easy for the hustle and bustle of gift-giving to eclipse the true meaning of the holiday. Author Sherrill S. Cannon provides a reminder in her children’s book about how Christmas can be about both Santa and Jesus.

In “Santa’s Birthday Gift,” Cannon takes the story of the Nativity and puts into simple terms for a very young child to understand. In a unique twist, the story shifts to an angel named Santa who sees the star at the North Pole and realizes that God’s Love had been born as a child.

“I was inspired by my 3-year-old granddaughter who, after I read the story of the Nativity, turned to me and asked, ‘But where’s Santa?’” said Cannon. “That same night, the entire story came to me in a dream; when I sat down to write it, the story flowed in rhyme.”

At a time when Christmas has become increasingly more about Black Friday, Cyber Monday and gifts under the tree, “Santa’s Birthday Gift” grounds children and their parents alike, reminding them of the true meaning of the holiday. The story, which focuses on prayer and giving, simplifies the story of Christ’s birth without confusing children, and without leaving Santa out.

“Sherrill’s book is one of many holiday-themed stories perfect for kids this Christmas,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency (SBPRA), Cannon’s publisher. “It’s not only great for the little ones on your list, but this top-seller also has a powerful and important message.”

“I constantly thank God for allowing me to be the one to write this story,” Cannon added. “My favorite part of authoring this book is hearing from parents that their little ones now understand the true meaning of Christmas.”

With thousands of copies sold, “Santa’s Birthday Gift” is part of SBPRA’s robust and growing children’s book catalog. Cannon’s book is available for online purchase through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and SBPRA’s website.

Mice and Spiders and Webs…Oh My!

Nice response from a reviewer when I asked if she’d like to donate her copy of Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! to one of her charities:

“It’s such a cute story, if it’s alright with you, I’ll keep it in my waiting room. I am a child psychologist (my day job) and have many kids coming and going all year long. I have a library for them to use while in the waiting room. This book would be especially appropriate! ”

Thank you, Valerie!

Please let me know if any more of you have any nice reactions to any of my books that you’d care to share…!

Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My!

Lovely new review for Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! by Stacie Theis of Beachbound Books:

“Mice & Spiders & Webs … Oh My! is the humorous rhyming tale about a little girl and a big misunderstanding.

Rosemary is very worried about going to school after her teachers latest announcement. It seems the class is going to be getting mice and spiders and the only ones effected by these scary critters are the females. Rosemary’s mom begins to think something sounds a little off and decides to speak with the teacher. Will they get to the bottom of the new class activity so Rosemary can return to school?

Of course my favorite aspect of this charming story is the rhyme. This wonderfully versed tale will have children and parents giggling with delight. As most parents know little ones often misinterpret what we say and until we get to the bottom of their confusion they can become frustrated and worried, much like little Rosemary. I adored this fun story and know it will become a fast favorite among readers.

I highly recommend picking up a copy of Mice & Spiders & Webs … Oh My!”
