I Hope to be Considered a Mentch

Please Measure by the Golden Rule

Please Measure by the Golden Rule

I’m proud to share this lovely note from Sarah Mazor of Mazor Books, referring to The Golden Rule:

“I love it that your books not only provide entertainment (and they do!) but also educate and guide kids (and their caretakers), for in all of them you promote messages laden with what we call “Mentchlechkeit” (n. Yiddish). You teach kids how to be a ‘mentch’ – a person who understands what is right and strives to comport him/herself accordingly.”

(I hope that I will also be considered a mentch!)

Thank you, Sarah!!

The Golden Rule is a Golden Book – Lovely Review by Sarah Reviews

Four Awards...


Thank you to Sarah Reviews for the lovely 5-Star Review of The Golden Rule which is titled “A Golden Book”.

In “The Golden Rule”, award-winning author Sherrill Cannon penned yet another delightful book that is bound to entertain children while it also imparts an important message about social interaction. While utilizing a lovely rhyming scheme, Ms. Cannon imprints on young minds the principle of treating others as they would like to be treated themselves. Ms. Cannon provides many examples of how to apply the “Golden Rule” and touches on principal values including sharing, consideration, anti-bullying and the concept of paying it forward. Highly recommended.

Thanks so much Sarah for helping me share!

Storytime Pup

by Kids Fun Channel/YouTube Reviewer: Darleen Wohlfeil

Storytime Pup is a fun and educational children’s channel that’s all about books, music, and imagination. e format encourages children to make choices in a safe and comfortable environment. They can freely choose their daily activity from several categories. Storytime Pup will read them a story book, lead them in imagination exercises, play games, or watch funny videos through his magic window. I randomly moved about the site. I first shared quiet listening time while Storytime Pup read a story about Peter and the Whimper Whineys to me. (A really great story, by the way.) Then I did an imagination exercise. We pretended to build a pizza together. First, we gathered our imaginary ingredients, and oh yes, we put on our aprons so as not to get sauce on our clothes. I pictured that I tossed my dough high in the air to stretch it out nice and at and round. What fun to make pretend pizza! Then, I wanted to play a game so I found a fun Seek & Find (hidden objects) page that looked interesting, and Pup and I searched for all the objects together. is is a great program to add to your little one’s schedule, either a perfect quiet spot during the day to cuddle and listen to a story, or an early morning spot to spend some physical fun with the imagination exercises, as you act out each step. However you choose to use the program,
it provides a useful resource for simple child development. New episodes are added every Mon./Wed./Sat. at 8:00 a.m. EST. Oh, and be sure to hit the “subscribe” button!

(Storytime Pup has also included The Golden Rule in one of it’s recent episodes, and plans to add more of my stories along the way!)
