My thoughts: It is hard to imagine a child, even a small child, in today’s world not recognizing terms such as mice, spiders, and webs without immediately recognizing them as computer connected terms. However, Sherrill Cannon has presented just such a story with a young, school age girl who is now afraid to go to school because the teacher said that “today” there would be “mice, spiders, and webs” at school.

Written in rhyme, this cute book is fun to read and Rosemary is adamant that she will not go to school with mice, spiders, and webs.

The case in point is that the young girl simply wasn’t listening closely and assumed from what she “heard” that real live mice and spiders would be there. And of course, she didn’t want to be around these creepy critters.

She does go to school and she is reconciled to learn that her teacher was introducing them to computers. So now she knows that it is important to listen well to what is being said.

The little book is also an introduction to the world-wide “web” and use of mice (computer mouse), and spiders that creep and crawl along the WWW.

Nicely illustrated by Kalpart, children will enjoy this story and learn a bit, too.

Children’s Books that Teach (disguised as fun stories)


Worth 1000 Words!!!

I recieved a lovely note from a fellow author, which I’d like to share:

“I sure do appreciate you Sherrill…There’s something SPECIAL about you anyway, you know, the way you care about our kids these days. They’re just not like we were, in our day. Someone needs to TEACH. Teaching helps young minds. That’s what your little books do. Little cute books with BIG lessons. Know what I mean? It’s TRUE you know.”

This made my heart smile, since I truly believe that children’s books should teach values such as consideration for others and being kind…and following the Golden Rule.  Please pay it forward!!

Thank you, Brenda.
